Terre à Terre is proud to present its fourth release of Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc from its close- spaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia.
The Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc has not been through malolactic fermentation and the different components were blended in August 2015, before being bottled on the 22nd of September 2015.The result is a very seductive and ripe white wine with alcohol of 13.3%v/v, residual sugar of 1.7g/L, pH of 3.2 and TA of 6g/L. Intense stone fruit characters combined with subdued herbal flavours lead to great mouthfeel and very balanced finish. One striking feature of this wine is the persistence of flavours, which demonstrates the exceptional quality of the terroir in our Wrattonbully vineyard site.
“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.” – 93 Points Gary Walsh
