Terre à Terre Reserve 2019
This is their prestige wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc, the best parcels. The blend is 62% Cab Sauv, 19% Shiraz and 19% Cab Franc and the wine spent seven months in new French oak and then a further year in old French foudres with a further 18 months in bottle before release. 2019 was a warm vintage, but a classic one for Wrattonbully. 700 cases made. The colour is a deep maroon and the wine exhibits complexity and depth with notes of florals, tobacco leaves, chocolate, blackberries, aniseed and bergamot. There are the familiar Cabernet characters with cigar box notes. Good focus, excellent length and plenty of grip with impressive balance. A cracker and should sail through ten to fifteen years.
