Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough 2010
Mellow, lemon pear flavor on the palate without much acidity showing. Very subdued, with a quiet but persistent finish.
Water like color to the pour. Very light and crisp. Hints of slight citrus hide behind a very mineral-like aroma. Taste of fine minerals that dissipate with time and turn more into a fruity, citrus phase, finally ending with a dry, satisfying finish. Excellent Sauvignon Blanc at this price range. I would highly recommend trying it.
The nose showed chalky minerals, grapefruit, stone, cat pee and citrus. On the palate, I found sweet apple fruit with mineral, citrus and herbs. The acid balance of this wine was very stern, at first, but opened up nicely over the course of an hour. The finish was long and mouth-watering with grapefruit and lemon pith lingering for half a minute.

External Reviews for Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough
The original New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Brancott has been producing this outstanding wine since 1979 and it's been a benchmark ever since. Brancott Vineyards have the unique distinction of having planted the first commercial vineyard in Marlborough. And we've all seen what that's led to. This 2010 is yet again, a Best Buy and something you won't want to miss.
Jalapentilde;o and green spice scents fill this rich sauvignon. Chill it for roast chicken.
The rsquo;04s are here! Break out the Sensodyne for this grapefruity, explosive New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Juicy, thirst-quenching flavors of lime and passion fruit in a lively, citrus-focused frame.
A spicy and pungent herbal, almost peppery, note gives way to crisp lemon, lime and white grapefruit flavors, with zingy acidity. Distinctive and very refreshing.
A plump sauvignon with clean varietal flavors of litchi and kiwi, this finishes clean, green and smoky. It's a tight and refreshing wine, probably best with another six months of bottle development, to serve with pan-roasted sand dabs.
Pungent and nettle-like upfront, but those leafy elements are balanced by bright grapefruity flavors on the palate. It's medium in body and fresh, clean and appealing on the finish. Hard to do better at the price.
