2019 Terre a Terre Crayeres Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Wine Rating 
 
96

This is a release i look forward to every year. As always it is a refined, complete and utterly compelling example of Sauvignon Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc for Terre a Terre is the main event, not a wine produced for the masses, it starts in the close planted, meticulously managed vineyard and ends with considered time in oak and on lees before bottling. What is so unique about this wine is time on lees and barrel treatment adds secondary interest and doesn’t take away from the fruit. Something not always achieved with the style.

The nose enjoys white grapefruit with understated tropical notes to lemon curd and faint mealy tones. The palate has texture and presence with a baseline of citrus acidity and tropical influence before broader stone fruits and a gentle creaminess are pulled back into line by driving, lemon edged acidity. The length is very good, and the wine is sure to evolve in the bottle.
