Winemaker's Notes:

Begins with mild acidity and lots of fruit-focus is on kiwi and grapefruit, with a bit of honeydew coming on the midpalate.

Intensely aromatic with that classic gooseberry, cut grass, asparagus and grapefruit nose that typifies Marlborough Sauvies. Bright and juicy on the palate with good energy and attractive complexity to the asparagus and green pea framed fruit flavors that hint at peach then receded back into a more classic grapefruit and lime profile. Finishing with good length and lovely purity, this is quite delicious and very refreshing. 88pts

This 2013 seems to be even better than the 2012. It has a great acid balance, unlike some NZ Sauv Blancs that are too acidic. Lots of fruit here with grapefruit, lemon and lime dominating. Noticeable gardenia and citrus in the nose. A tremendous value. My rating-- 91.

A succulent, smooth mix of ruby grapefruit, citrus and melon flavors, with a peachy finish and refreshing acidity. Drink now.

Even Brancott’s entry-level Sauvignon Blanc is a solid effort, adding a hint of fumé character to its otherwise straightforward blend of stone and passion fruit. There might be a touch of residual sugar to give the impression of weight, but it’s balanced by the tangy acids on the finish.

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 2013 is yet again named a Best Buy by Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "Even Brancott’s entry-level Sauvignon Blanc is a solid effort, adding a hint of fumé character to its otherwise straightforward blend of stone and passion fruit. There might be a touch of residual sugar to give the impression of weight, but it’s balanced by the tangy acids on the finish."

Brancott sauvignon blanc presents an intense blend of fresh grapefruit and passion fruit flavors, ripe tropical notes and crisp acidity. Brancott Sauvignon Blanc is always a refreshing, snappy white and pairs great with seafood, salads, and other light fare.
