Item Description
" We were first to recognise Marlborough’s potential for exceptional wine, planting this variety on Brancott Vineyard. Brancott Estate wines are named in honour of this, our original Marlborough vineyard. 2010 was a magnificent vintage with the fruit ripened to perfect conditions. This impressive, fullbodied Sauvignon Blanc is handcrafted from grapes grown on our key Marlborough vineyards that have delivered a rich, expressive and flavoursome wine.
In this wine, green olives and herbaceous aromas with underlying fennel notes dominate the nose. The palate is flavoursome showing a rich concentration of pure Marlborough Sauvignon characters. The fresh capsicum
notes are complemented by an oily texture and tantalising minerality, held together by a crisp acidity that leads to a lingering finish. This wine is a perfect accompaniment for pan-fried herb
polenta cakes, roasted red capsicum and sweet onions, basil pesto and roasted tomato relish. Though made to drink
whilst it is young and vivacious, this wine may be cellared for up to three years to develop further complexity." ~ Winery notes
About Brancott Estate
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.
