In the Press: Crayères Sauvignon Blanc in The Drinks List


Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019

“Fragrant, ripe aromas of gooseberry, kiwifruit, lemon and a patina of creamy lees, but no herbaceousness. Oak is not obvious: barrel maturation subtle. It’s intense, focused and long on the palate, with superior fruit concentration. Screw- cap; 13.1 per cent alcohol. Drink now to 11 years. Score 95”

review from “The Drinks List by Huon Hooke- Three Bottles Sauvignon Blanc you will Love”

“Sauvignon blanc is a wine many love to hate, in the same way they might profess to hate Abba, Ken Done or Harry Potter. Success can do that. In a sense, the pungent passionfruity style of Marlborough sauvignon blanc sells itself. It doesn’t need the approval of critics, many of whom knock it. Nevertheless, sauvignon blanc remains one of the world’s great grapes. When carefully grown fruit is harvested properly ripe, fermented on solids, in barrels, and the wine matured on its yeast lees, a more complex style can result – more Nick Cave than Justin Bieber.”
