The Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc was first produced in 2012. It is the little brother of our Terre à Terre Sauvignon Blanc (first made in 2008).
Part of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit from our single vineyard is used each year to make our Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc using more modern winemaking techniques (controlled temperature fermentation in stainless steel, ageing in tank on lees).
The style is therefore more “new world” than the “old world” Terre à Terre, fresher and with more fruit flavours.
The Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc has been included in James Halliday’s TOP 100 in 2012 and in 2013, which is a great achievement and acknowledges the great quality of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit from our close spaced single vineyard in Wrattonbully.
