Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough 2010
External Reviews for Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough
Light and fresh, with modest grapefruit flavors matched by herbal notes and some flowery aromatics. Probably best as an apeacute;ritif.
Bright, with very good intensity to grass, lime, lemon blossom and grapefruit tones. Pronounced mineral and stone flavors extend through the concentrated finish. Drink now.
Very pale color. Aromas of kiwi, papaya and honeydew. Rich and concentrated, with moderately complex tropical fruit flavors and a silky texture. Enters the mouth with sweet fruit and an impression of thickness, then firms up toward the back, finishing with drier notes of pear skin and apple core. Production of this item is reportedly in the range of 850,000 cases!
Why the price had to jump $2 in a year that produced ample yields is a mystery, but the quality is still in the bottle from this perennial Best Buy. Itrsquo;s plump in feel, with ripe citrus mdash; orange and tangerine mdash; accented by zippy lime and grassy notes. Could be longer on the finish, but this is still a very good value.
Smooth and round, with tangy acidity supporting the pear and apricot flavors, lingering well. Drink now.
Brancottrsquo;s best-ever regular SB bottling boasts grassy, sweet-pea aromas but also plenty of nectarine and floral notes. Itrsquo;s plump and fleshy on the palate, adding pink grapefruit and herbal notes to the mix, then finishing with hints of green pepper and honey.
A beautiful representation of Marlborough, Brancott is a medium bodied, slightly dry wine with an anthology of exotic tropical fruits, displaying kiwi, gooseberry, passion fruit and nectarine. It has a crisp acidity that shows off its style allowing it to pair harmoniously with oysters, shrimp, hummus or numerous Mediterranean style tapas. One of my personal favoriteshellip; it is a party in your mouth!
