Majority of Cabrenet Sauvignon with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah
The 2017 season was marked by a relatively dry autumn and winter with temperatures slightly above seasonal averages, leading to early sprouting of new shoots on the vines. Flowering also began a few days early in comparison to previous seasons. The spring rains ensured the vines had the necessary water reserves for the entire summer, which was extremely dry with temperatures constantly above 30°C, with few localised rainy spells. The alternation of these events resulted in an excellent harvest, with the arrival of perfectly ripened grapes in the cellar.
The carefully harvested grapes arrive in the cellar and are de-stemmed, and fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. Maceration on the skins takes two weeks.
The wine is subsequently aged for 12 months in French oak barriques being used for the second and third time. A further period in the bottle follows before Terre More can be enjoyed to the full.
