Selected parcels of fruit from the Marlborough region have been carefully blended together to create this typically aromatic Marlborough Pinot Gris. This wine displays honeysuckle aromas that lift to reveal fresh Nashi pear and tropical rockmelon notes. The palate has flavours of peaches, apricots and sweet tropical fruits like mangoes. It is rich, full and weighty with subtle spicy notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. Serve slightly chilled on its own or with delicate white meat, pasta or seafood dishes.
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.
