Terre à Terre is proud to present its first release of Cabernet Franc coming from its very unique close-spaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia.
This new wine is the best surprise from the Crayères vineyard. Cabernet Franc is one of the best red varieties in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, and in Wrattonbully as well. This wine shows how well the variety responds to the Saint Emilion like climate, terroir and vineyard design. Floral (violet) aromas with hints of red currants come through on the palate with very soft and elegant Bordeaux-like tannins on finish.
“It’s a rare bird all right, and a beautiful one too. Redcurrant, floral perfume, signature sweet grassiness of Franc, gentle sweetly spiced oak in support. Medium bodied, crisp and precise, subtly herbal, perfumed red fruit with hazelnut richness to bring it home. Lovely settled acidity, fine almost gummy tannin, and a long fresh strawberried finish with suave grainy tannin teasing it out. Emphatic approval on all fronts here. Great drink. High interest.” – 94 Points Gary Walsh
“French connection here in more ways than one. It wouldn’t be difficult to mistake this wine for one from the northern Rhône. The dark berry characteristics are enhanced by pronounced black pepper overtones. A delicious medium-bodied style with fine tannins.” – 4.5 Stars & Highly Recommended Winewise
