Terre à Terre Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

From the close planted Crayères vineyard in Wrattonbully. A site that is beginning to distinguish itself as one of Australia's finest. It's 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, the balance being Cabernet Franc (9%) and a splash of Shiraz (5%).

It carries an aura of a wine of finesse. Subtle, delicate: redcurrant, cedar herb, and bay. Finesse, structure - whilst the tannins are filling they are fine, gently extracted and yet set to serve the wine well over the future. 

It feels totally unforced, and long on the finish. This will cellar exceptionally, twenty years plus. 95
