Great deal for ~$10. Classic NZ Sauv Blanc profile: Tropical, grassy, kiwi, fresh on the nose. Nice acid. Went well with BBQ on a warm summer evening.
Energetic, crisp, refreshing, tasty, and very well-priced. Classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with pungent herbal qualitites buttressed by pink grapefruit flavors and tropical undertones. Lively acidity, light and bright in the mouth and finish. Really good summertime wine, really good food wine.
Peaches. Good, but with a bitter end.
Has a distinctive bouquet that gives way to a crisp, refreshing taste that reminds me of lime and apricots. Bright and intense both in aroma and flavor. Perfect for summer sipping and unlike any sauvignon blanc I've ever had including Brancotts of prior vintages. A real winner especially when it can be found for $10.
External Reviews for Brancott Vineyards Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Streamlined, with very good concentration to lime juice, grass and guava flavors highlighted by wet stone character. Drink now.
Why the price had to jump $2 in a year that produced ample yields is a mystery, but the quality is still in the bottle from this perennial Best Buy. It's plump in feel, with ripe citrus - orange and tangerine - accented by zippy lime and grassy notes. Could be longer on the finish, but this is still a very good value.
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. A well-balanced wine, showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.
Brancott's best-ever regular SB bottling boasts grassy, sweet-pea aromas but also plenty of nectarine and floral notes. It's plump and fleshy on the palate, adding pink grapefruit and herbal notes to the mix, then finishing with hints of green pepper and honey.
Shows some sweaty notes, but also plenty of zippy, peppery fruit backed by ripe melon flavors. It's surprisingly weighty for an entry-level bottling, its slightly oily texture offset by a tangy finish.
The '04s are here! Break out the Sensodyne for this grapefruity, explosive New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Juicy, thirst-quenching flavors of lime and passion fruit in a lively, citrus-focused frame.
