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
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.
Streamlined, with very good concentration to lime juice, grass and guava flavors highlighted by wet stone character. Drink now.
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.
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.
Light, bright and zingy, with lime and mineral aromas and flavors, finishing tight. Drink now.
Tangy, citrusy, pleasant style, finishing tart. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes Ripe bell pepper aromas dominate, with hints of passionfruit. The palate has rich fruit intensity with a crisp finish. Grapes are harvested from our renowned Brancott Estate in Marlborough and are produced in a consistent, definitive Marlborough style.
