Terre à Terre is proud to present its third release of Cabernet Franc coming from its very unique close-spaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia. This vineyard has been baptised the Crayères Vineyard, after the chalk cellars that are found throughout Xavier’s region of birth in Champagne, France. Similar natural structures are found underneath this very special vineyard, and they are now the subject of a research project led by a team from the University of Adelaide as they are full of undisturbed ancient fossilised remains.

The Cabernet Franc came off the day before the Cabernet Sauvignon, on the 22nd of March 2016. The Cabernet Franc was all fermented in small 1-tonne open plastic fermenters, with plunging once a day, pressed off skins after 23 days of cold maceration, fermentation and post fermentation maceration. It was racked to 25% new French oak barrels and the rest in 2-year old French oak barrels and aged for 28 months in oak. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration early December 2018.
