Terre a Terre Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2016

By my calculations, this is the fifth release of this excellent wine from the Terre a Terre crew. Sees some treatment (large oak, time on lees) to build a little complexity and interest in the wine.

Offering up hints of honeyed, poached pear this one certainly invites. If the invitation comes via the aromatics, it's the spiced oak nuances and complexity that are positively all the encouragement one needs to come in, take a seat and make oneself ruddy comfortable.

Melon, spice and a mere suggestion of vanilla creme long leave a lasting impression. Quite simply outstanding value. 93
