Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Seemingly finding the house pattern for the wine, initial fermentation in stainless steel before time in large format French demi-muids (640 litre fermentation vessels!).

Something like a buttery, caramelised sensation of patisserie, over underlying essence of Quince and almond paste. It's certainly rich, creamy, inviting - nothing like the commercial style Sauvignon that sully this great white's hopes. 

Creamy palate, yet with a cut and thrust of spiny grapefruit acidity down the length of the palate. Finishes long, gloriously textural, you just know this has the meat and the bones to develop over the mid term. 94 

Tasted on: Monday 20th April
