"Hand-picked, crushed, destemmed, 21 days fermentation and maceration on skins in 1-tonne fermenters, plunged twice daily, matured in 4000l French foudres for 18 months, 5% cabernet franc from the Crayeres Vineyard added. Good colour, bouquet and palate; the mouthfeel is silky and fluid until fine-grained tannins make their appearance on the back-palate and finish; elegance is its watchword." 94 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2016.

Background

Terre à Terre is proud to present its fifth release of Cabernet Sauvignon coming from its very unique closespaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia. This vineyard has been baptised the Crayères Vineyard, after the chalk cellars that are found throughout Xavier's region of birth in Champagne, France. Similar natural structures are found underneath this very special vineyard, and they are now the subject of a research project led by a team from the University of Adelaide as they are full of undisturbed ancient fossilised remains. The Crayères vineyard is located next to Tapanappa's Whalebone Vineyard, at the top of a north-south limestone ridge in Wrattonbully, one of Australia's most exciting regions. The Terra Rossa top-soil is characteristic of the area. The Cabernet Sauvignon was planted on rootstocks in 2004 using the Reynella and CW44 clones, at a relatively high density for the area (4,444 vines per hectare, similar to the density of vineyards in Saint Emilion). The fruiting wire is only 50cm above ground, which is why the local vignerons call the vines the "low vines".
