This Sauvignon Blanc presents a beautiful ripe fruit character reminiscent of citrus blossom and tropical fruit with crisp nettle highlights. Almost pungent in its intensity, it displays a spectrum of full fruit flavors from ripe tropical fruit to lush pink grapefruit. Pairs well with grill oysters, barbecued prawns or salmon, and poached white fish with fresh green salads containing parsley, pepper or lemon.
The Brancott Winery opened in 1977, making it one of the oldest wineries in Marlborough. From producing one of the world's first grape tipping tanks, the winery has stayed true to its pioneering herigate and embraced innovation. It was one of the first to commercially plant Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough in 1973, at the top of New Zealand's South Island and has been heavily instrumental in developing the region as one of the foremost viticultural regions for Sauvignon Blanc world-wide. At present, Brancott Estate continues to lead with its innovative winemaking approach and passionate commitment to excellence under the stewardship of chief winemaker, Patrick Materman.
