Tasting Notes

Very good and uniform set in all varieties, leading to a very harmonious and slow ripening at the end of the season. As a result, the fruit had great colour and amazing tannins and flavours

About the Winery

The Terre a Terre Rouge was first produced in 2014. This wine is made from red varieties coming from vineyards we own and manage (in 2014, this is 100% Crayeres vineyard). It will always ferment in small old barriques and large French oak Foudres and will always be a blend of Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) and Shiraz.

This new blend for Terre a Terre is probably one of the most independent-minded wines of the range, demonstrating how well Shiraz and Cabernet Franc work together in an assemblage . The aromas are floral and of classic blackberry fruit and the palate shows very soft tannins with great length. Only 750 dozen were produced

Terre a Terre, a french expression meaning "Down to Earth", was started by husband and wife team Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser with the desire to produce great Australian wines of terroir ... with a French twist.
