Bright pale yellow. Deliciously enticing florals, quite exotic and complex. Pristine grapefruit and finger lime citrus with nuances of chamomile, wheat germ and salad greens. Bracing on entry, succulent, almost Riesling like to close. Author: Sophie Otton Source: Le Pan Review Date: Friday, October 9, 2015 Rated: 91 points

Lucy Croser and Xavier Bizot called one label Terre à Terre (French for “down to earth”) and the other … Down to Earth (there’s no room here to explain). This barrel-fermented style used to be called fumé blanc, and it’s one of the few sauvignon blancs that can be aged. It’s sensational: elegant yet bursting […]

Here we have a rarity – a sauvignon blanc that is still on the improve more than a year after vintage. It’s comparatively complex and textural as a result of barrel fermentation, but retains its gooseberry/grass varietal character. Source: Wine Wise Review Date: Thursday, July 30, 2015 ★★★★☆

Bordeaux, meet Australian Sauv Blanc. Author: Andrew Graham Source: Australian Wine Review Review Date: Wednesday, July 15, 2015 Actually, that’s not quite right, as this doesn’t feel like Bordeaux Blanc at all. Too ‘fruity’ for that. More like a Fumé, if anything. Sourced from the close-planted Terre à Terre vineyard in Wrattonbully, it was handpicked, […]

Single Vineyard offering out of Wrattonbully. Sees some oak, both in fermentation and maturation. Author: Campbell Mattinson Source: winefront.com.au Review Date: Tuesday, July 7, 2015 Sheesh, there’s some sophistication here. It doesn’t come at the expense of pure, sheer drinkability either. Opulent fruit and texture, sweet lime and barley, dried hay/grass, stone fruits. Flavour-packed acidity […]
