Terre à Terre Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2021
The classic Aussie red blend, their fourth release, but the 11th release of a Cabernet dominant style. The blend is 66% Cabernet and 34% Shiraz with 5,400 cases of six bottles. The wine spent 14 months in a mix of old French barriques and foudres, and has a vibrant purple colour. Notes of spices, tobacco leaves, animal skins, raspberries, cherries, coffee grinds and a hint of licorice. Delightfully fresh at this stage with some early complexity evident. A juicy style with impressive length and very fine tannins. Seamless and with considerable but balanced intensity. Lovely wine to drink for ten years plus.
