Terre a Terre Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Estate-grown, hand-picked, cool fermented in tank, and 5% matured in a new French foudre (upright vat). Continues a proud track record of exceptional focus, intensity and drive to its mix of citrus, tropical fruits and mineral. It leaves those who deny sauvignon blanc a place in vinous heaven out in the cold. Rating: 96 points / 5 glasses - James Halliday, Top 100 Wines, The Australian
A mere five percent spends time in oak, but that small detail lends the curl of texture and perfume that gives the wine an x-factor. intense with driving exotic tropical fruit, but tightens up and shows fine structure. Interesting.
93 Points, Mike Bennie, Wine Business Monthly
Subdued aromatics with kiwi fruit, lemon barley, subtle herbal notes and a light topping of cream and spice. Light to medium weight with a gentle chalky texture, clear acidity and flavours of tangy grapefruit segments in light syrup. Pulls flinty and dry on the finish. Sophisticated style that’s very nicely done. 92 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
