Mysterious Diggings Wines
The way we think about wine at Terra Sancta is there are really only two sorts of wine worth drinking. First, special wines, that cause you to take a moment, feel something diferent about life, and encourage imagination and a sense of place and connectedness. Second, those wines that are simply delicious, and when you drink it you pause, go "wow, that is great" and then get on with the conversation, the bolognese, the antipasto, or the picnic, with the wine fitting perfectly into the whole feeling, but not dominating it. It is this second type of wine - the truly delicious (an underappreciated quality in wine!) that each of our Mysterious Diggings wines deliver.
Mysterious Diggings Pinot Noir
An early map by a resident of Bannockburn gave a small parcel of land the name ‘Mysterious Diggings’. A vineyard of extreme beauty, high in the hills, the Diggings vineyard has sun-drenched, rocky terraces with soils heavy in native schist. The fragrance and dark cherry flavors of the Diggings Pinot Noir are created by these unique vineyard soils.
Simply delicious, it is perfect now, but will keep giving for those who delay their gratification for up to 6 years. For a detailed tasting note click on the below link:
