External Reviews for Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
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.
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.
