Author: Patrick Eckel Source: winereviewer.com.au Review Date: June 4 2018 Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Terre a Terre produce some of the most interesting Sauvignon Blanc’s in South Australia.

Author: Campbell Mattinson Source: winefront.com.au Review Date: June 1 2018 Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Another pristine release from Terre A Terre. Straight lines of flavour. Purity, neatness and length. Textural but only just. Aromatic but not OTT. You’d have to say that this gets pretty much everything right, in a restrained length-is-key style. Reckon in 6-12 months […]

Author: Huon Hooke Source: therealreview.com Date: 7 May 2018 Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Tasted on a preserving system in Vagabond restaurant, Buckingham Palace Rd, Victoria, London.

Author: Jancis Robinson Source: JancisRobinson.com Date: 25 February 2018 Terre à Terre Rouge 2015 No particular varietal signature on the nose – rather smudgier and less refreshing than the 2014 with which I was so taken. A very pleasing blend on the palate but there is something just slightly less than fully ripe on the nose and […]
