Editorial Reviews for Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc
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.
External Reviews for Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Pungent aromas of grapefruit pith, green and white pepper and spices. Offers good body and intensity, with a juicy greenness to the grapefruit, pepper and mint flavors. Brisk but nicely ripe — in contrast to so many 2012s.
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.
A succulent, smooth mix of ruby grapefruit, citrus and melon flavors, with a peachy finish and refreshing acidity. Drink now.
