How’s it taste?
This is certainly one of our best value wines - a delicious, aged Coonawarra Cabernet with choc minty, cedar, blackcurrant pastille fruit and supple tannins for drinking over the medium term.
Who made it?
The name Terramore is a play on the words terroir, relating to the terra rossa soil of the Coonawarra, and the Italian word for love, amore. It is the newest addition to the Coonawarra region of South Australia created by third generation grape growers Phil and Mandy Gartner. The aim is to produce wines that are quintessential Coonawarra from their vineyards located in the heart of the region. The Terramore mission statement is ‘Fine wines from the terroir of Coonawarra.’ The first release was a 2009 full-flavoured, rich Cabernet Sauvignon, but they also produce crisp, tropical Sauvignon Blanc and plush cherry and plum Shiraz.

So, if you’re having trouble finding the right wine today, never fear, it happens to all of us! And to help make things easier, I have selected some of my personal favourites.
