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.

Streamlined, with very good concentration to lime juice, grass and guava flavors highlighted by wet stone character. Drink now.

Juicy and refreshing, with grapefruit, and melon flavors, that remain zingy through the tart finish. Drink now.

Pale straw in color with green highlights. Aromas of ripe, red capsicum and gooseberry dominate with tropical pineapple and grapefruit notes apparent. This wine displays full fruit intensity. A well-balanced wine, showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.

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!

Jalapeño and green spice scents fill this rich sauvignon. Chill it for roast chicken.

This vintage of Brancott's Sauvignon Blanc knocks it right down the center of the fairway-clean and refreshing, marked by brisk acids. Stone fruit and melon notes abound, tinged with just the right proportion of green herbs. Drink now.

Tight and tart, with sharply focused grapefruit, lime and peach aromas and flavors competing for attention as the finish races along, persisting impressively. Drink now.
