2010 Terre à Terre Sauvignon Blanc: “Brilliant”

This is another excellent sauvignon blanc from the more complex end of the pool, showing ripe tropical fruits and hints of citrus peel melding nicely with grilled nuts and savoury biscuit aromas; ripe dark-leaf herbs too. The palate’s concise and complex, really smoothly worked up in the winery; fresh and crisp to close. Brilliant. Author: […]

The third release of this oak aged Sauvignon Blanc and it’s built in a similar (clever) vein to last year. Again it has seen 6 months in large/old oak with regular lees stirring along the way. Whilst it has been made in a similar fashion to the 2009 it looks a little riper and fuller […]

Ah, no, not another bloody sauv blanc. Whoa, hold on. Wow. This is Lucy Croser and Xavier Bizot’s Australian take on a sauvignon-blanc style made by leading small makers in France. Its barrel fermented and matured in a way that builds texture and body and mutes varietal exuberance while retaining exciting acid-driven vivacity. Terre à […]

Terre à Terre 2010 Sauvignon Blanc – 94 points

From a close planted vineyard in Wrattonbully, comes this fascinating barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc. It just came in today – I’m feeling LIFO. Grapefruit, subdued pineapple frivolity, along with cinnamon and vanilla spice, smoke and hint of capsicum – it’s all going on here. Intense, focussed and citric combining balanced acidity with mildly abrasive grippy […]
