External Reviews for Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc B
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.
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.
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.
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.
