"Hand-picked, crushed, destemmed, 1-tonne fermenters 24 days, matured in French barriques (30% new) for 18 months, 240 dozen made. A great example of a light to medium-bodied wine that has complexity coming out of its ears, the scene set by its clear, vivid crimson-purple colour, the aromas and mouthwatering flavours with more or less equal portions of sour and red cherries." 96 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2016.

Background

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 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. This part of the vineyard was planted on rootstocks in 2008 using cuttings from the neighbouring Whalebone Vineyard and French clones and 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".
