Brancott Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The wine is pale straw in color with green highlights. Aromas of ripe, red capsicum and gooseberry dominate with tropical pineapple and grapefruit notes apparent. This wine displays full fruit intensity. The ripe capsicum and gooseberry flavors with hints of pungency sit well with the supporting tropical fruit flavors. A well-balanced wine showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.

A constant "Best Buy" according to the Wine Enthusiast. Light golden color with watermelon and lemon aromas on the nose. Hints of green grass, herbs, and melon taste with a nice balanced acidity. Very refreshing, wonderful wine to have for a great price.

winemaker's notes:The wine is light straw in color with green highlights. Aromas of gooseberry, stone fruits and red capsicum characterize the nose with the palate showing ripe gooseberry supported by peach notes and a tantalizing minerality. This wine shows a fantastic equilibrium of concentrated fruit flavors and zesty acidity.
