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.

Tight and tart, with sharply focused grapefruit, lime and peach aromas and flavors competing for attention as the finish races along, persisting impressively. Drink now.

A beautiful representation of Marlborough, Brancott is a medium bodied, slightly dry wine with an anthology of exotic tropical fruits, displaying kiwi, gooseberry, passion fruit and nectarine. It has a crisp acidity that shows off its style allowing it to pair harmoniously with oysters, shrimp, hummus or numerous Mediterranean style tapas. One of my personal favorites... it is a party in your mouth!

Smooth and round, with tangy acidity supporting the pear and apricot flavors, lingering well. Drink now.

Light and fresh, with modest grapefruit flavors matched by herbal notes and some flowery aromatics. Probably best as an apéritif.

Bright and refreshing, with lime, pear and mineral flavors that keep singing on the lively finish. Drink now.

Bright, with very good intensity to grass, lime, lemon blossom and grapefruit tones. Pronounced mineral and stone flavors extend through the concentrated finish. Drink now.

Jalapeño and green spice scents fill this rich sauvignon. Chill it for roast chicken.

Winemaker's Notes:

In this wine, green olives and herbaceous aromas with underlying fennel notes dominate the nose. The palate is flavoursome showing a rich concentration of pure Marlborough Sauvignon characters. The fresh capsicum notes are complemented by an oily texture and tantalising minerality, held together by a crisp acidity that leads to a lingering finish.
