Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Whole bunch pressed; 2m cold settling in steel then off to 6 old (unsure how old) 600l French oak dwmi-muids. Then 8m on full lees, no Battonage, racked back to stainless before bottling. 400 doz made.

An excellent wine, one of focus, precision and texture.

Complex and heady mix, approaching peach and something like frangipane. There's a residual oak hint that bolsters the aromatics, segueing to the palate. 

Oak is present, adding texture and tannin, acid is fresh and driving across the finish providing focal length. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe the mantel of Australia's finest Sauvignon Blanc has been accepted. 94
