Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Fermented in 600L French oak demi-muids, then on full solids in the same for 8m.

Sauvignon Blanc re-thought. Conveys vanilla creme and almond paste, elements of herb remain, subtle - the considered hand of Xavier Bizot ironically writ large here. The time on full lees is evident through the substantive palate presence. 

Aromatics flow through on the palate, the creamy aspects a force here. A guiding frame of acid provides the structure for the wine to hang off. An impressive finish, subtle and yet generous to a tee. Sauvignon Blanc to a new level. 95
