TERRE A TERRE DOWN TO EARTH SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016

Wine Region: Wrattonbully, South Australia

Grape: Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

Layered and intense flavours of lime, spice and stone fruit lead to very textured mouthfeel and very long and balanced finish. The wine does not show any of the herbaceous characters of the variety, which was our goal. This is our best Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc yet and the one that will age the best, it demonstrates the exceptional quality of the terroir in our Crayères vineyard site, a First Vignes wine.

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.
