About The Wine

Terre à Terre take their Sauvignon Blanc very seriously.

They are one of the country’s leaders in this variety. Their attention to detail in the vineyard is what is setting them apart and placing them at the head of the pack.

Their close planted vineyard in Wrattonbully produces fruit of striking intensity. The Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc is made in two parts, the first, earlier picked fruit is fermented in stainless, the second was fermented in large format oak.

There is a lot that goes into making this wine and it shows.

James Halliday awarded it 94 points and Gary Walsh described it as “ripe but still racy” in his 93 point review, which pretty much sums it up. A serious Sauv Blanc for the stalwart fans of the variety.

What It Tastes Like

“Gooseberry, quince and grapefruit, light herbal inflection, though it’s not the dominant trait. It’s of medium body, ripe but still racy, with some lemon and grapefruit flavours mingling with gentle tropical fruit. Has an attractive flinty texture, clean acidity and a finish that’s refreshing in the same way a gin and tonic is: that bit of crunch and bitter tang on the finish. Don’t serve it too cold or you’ll kill the flavour and texture, which is no bad thing in many a Sauvignon, but not this one.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
