Down To Earth Pays d’Oc Cabernet/Merlot 2011

02-Nov-2012
Turanga Creek at Whitford, was Auckland's first certified organic winery. Wayne and Mandy Allen established acquired the 24 ha property in 2005 and worked to have it certified BioGro organic in March 2011. They see the organic status as essential for the full expression of the terroir of the wines they have Rod McDonald contracted to make. Supplementing the Turanga Creek wines are the ‘Down To Earth' range which includes natural wines from other sites in New Zealand and from overseas. Here I review a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend made in co-operation with organic growers from the Pays d'Oc Languedoc-Roussillon region in the south of France. www.turangacreek.co.nz
