Probably the most grapefruity Sauvignon Blanc I have ever tasted. That is not good/bad, just different.
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 Marlborough Sauv. Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand displays the regions distinctive characters. Experience a burst of intense, fresh fuit flavors with a delightful zesty finish
Pale straw. Pungent aromas of grapefruit pith, fresh herbs and pepper. Sweet, round and spicy, with varietally typical herbaceous and peppery elements enlivening the pineapple fruit. Fairly dense and tactile for a sauvignon in this price range, conveying a solid impression of extract.
Tangy lime and grapefruit flavors are complimented by a clean, crisp acidity and accented with plenty of mineral and herb details. Drink now.
Pungent and nettle-like upfront, but those leafy elements are balanced by bright grapefruity flavors on the palate. Itrsquo;s medium in body and fresh, clean and appealing on the finish. Hard to do better at the price.
Brancott sets the style for clean, oceanic Marlborough sauvignon with this mouthwatering wine. Thereandrsquo;s a touch of flint in the aroma, bright passionfruit flavors and fresh acidity to balance it. Delicious with a plate of fried clams.
Smooth and round, with tangy acidity supporting the pear and apricot flavors, lingering well. Drink now.
Bright and refreshing, with lime, pear and mineral flavors that keep singing on the lively finish. Drink now.
