World Wine – "This icon iteration from Xavier Bizot, as he stakes the red-wine reputation of his south-east SA Wrattonbully vineyard on the traditional Australian cabernet-shiraz blend, is claret on steroids. What makes it his ultimate statement, his “Reserve” style, is immediately obvious in the glass: a seductive perfume of cabernet in crushed black berry and floral violet mode, these spilling into an intensely evocative weave of rich, dark, spicy and savoury elements that speak all about the synergy of fruit, oak and time." - Tony Love (winepilot.com)
About This Wine
The Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Reserve is produced every year by blending the best of the vintage from our unique Crayères vineyard.
A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Shiraz and 16% Cabernet Franc aged in French oak (84% new) for 11 months and then in a 5-year-old foundre for 17 months. Deep black dark red core with a dark red hue. Intense red and black currant aromas have a vanillin cedar edge with notions of mulberry, fresh herbs, dusty earth and spice also evident. Quite full in body, the palate is decorated with rich blackcurrant and liquorice fruits which are backed by a firm, sturdy tannin structure. Elements of vanillin cedar, dusty tobacco, dried herbs and spice sit underneath. Finishes with good freshness and a long, rich yet robust aftertaste. Cellar 5-6 years. Alc. 14.5%
