In just one small sticker, the key components of this sparkling wine are communicated incredibly effectively. Here it is:
Transparency in labelling benefits both wine producers and consumers. Although the words chosen are the French ones, we swifly learn:
Cepages (grape varieties): 82% pinot noir and 18% chardonnay
Vintages: 81% from 2017 and 19% reserve wine
Tirage (commencement of secondary fermentation in bottle): January 2018
Disgorge (removal of lees from wine): July 2019 (18 months)
Method of production (elsewhere on label): traditional method.
Region: Piccadilly Valley (in the Adelaide Hills)
This approach is to be commended. In the glass, the wine has a refined aroma of strawberries and yeast. The palate is dry with a delicate, creamy mousse and refreshing, high acidity. This is a high quality sparkling wine that is ready to drink now. Rating: Very Good. Website: https://terreaterre.com.au; wine-searcher.com. Source: Sample. Reviewed: September 2020.
