The Brancott Estate Letter Series B is a single vineyard wine that displays fresh grapfruit and peach notes, with all fruit harvested from Brancott Vineyard, home of Marlborough s first Sauvignon Blanc plantings.
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.
A spicy and pungent herbal, almost peppery, note gives way to crisp lemon, lime and white grapefruit flavors, with zingy acidity. Distinctive and very refreshing. Drink now.
