Brancott Estate wines honour our original Marlborough home - Brancott Vineyard.

It's now more than 30 years since we introduced the world to a wine style unlike anything experienced before. We were the first to plant and create the world’s first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine – a style that has since changed the course of New Zealand's wine industry.

While Marlborough is our home, we also craft wines from other renowned winegrowing regions of New Zealand – wines that continue to be judged among the best in shows the world over, and most importantly - by wine lovers such as yourself.

  • Brancott Pinot Noir 2009


    A savoury nose leads into savoury cherry fruit in the mouth, well balanced. There's a hint of freshness to lighten up that savouriness and the whole sensation is silky smooth. It ends with good length making this great value for the £7.59 I paid for it at Waitrose in the UK. Read More

  • Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough 2010


    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. Read More

  • Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough 2010


    Mellow, lemon pear flavor on the palate without much acidity showing. Very subdued, with a quiet but persistent finish. Read More

  • Brancott Pinot Noir 2010


    The nose showed blueberry and cherry with spicy vanilla and hints of undergrowth. On the palate, it was tight and focused with black cherry, spices and stems, leading to a finish with bright, tart red fruit. The texture was smooth yet with a stern acidic backbone, which detracted slightly from my overall impression of the wine. Read More

  • Brancott Estate Living Land Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Marlborough 2010


    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. Read More

  • Brancott Pinot Noir 2010


    1st New Zealand Pinot I've tried, and it was very enjoyable. Very light on its feet, with cherry, raspberry, strawberries and a green floral element. Lively acidity balances the fruit very well. Not a whole lot on the finish, but a pleasant surprise on the whole. Read More
