Bannockburn winery Terra Sancta comprises two connected vineyards on Felton Rd, including the vineyard formerly known as Olssens. Terra Sancta means sacred land, an indication of the respect new proprietors Mark Weldon and Sarah Eliott have for the estate that is host to the oldest vines in the Cromwell Basin. There are currently five pinot noirs in the Terra Sancta range: the estate pinot, the second-tier Mysterious Diggings label and three premium single-block expressions – Jackson’s Block, Slapjack Block and Shingle Beach. White varietals produced are chardonnay, pinot gris and riesling.
What The Critics Say
95/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Pale, pretty rosé with delicate crushed strawberry and raspberry flavours. Pure, pristine wine with an ethereal texture and and gentle, mouth-watering acidity. A very attractive wine." Drink 2019 - 2022
93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"This is instantly appealing on the nose showing fragrant aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rockmelon and lemon zest, leading to a beautifully expressed palate that is juicy and smooth. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and intensity, finishing long and very tasty. At its best: now to 2019. $28.00. www.terrasancta.co.nz. Nov 2017." Drink 2017 - 2019
5 Stars Michael Cooper
"From one vintage to the next, this is one of the country's leading rosés. Bursting with freshness, the 2017 vintage (5*) was mostly handled in tanks; a small part of the blend was fermented and aged in old French oak casks. Bright pink, it is highly scented and vivacious, with mouthfilling body, an array of plum, red-berry, strawberry, watermelon and spice flavours, showing lovely depth and harmony, and a dry (4.3 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Great drinking for the summer of 2017?18." Drink 2018 - 2020
