Sauvignon Blanc - White New Zealand Wine
Ripe tropical aromas balancing nettle aromatics with highlights of ripe grapefruit and white blossoms. This wine, considered a benchmark of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, is from fruit harvested across the Marlborough region famous for this variety.
The wine displays intensity with white stone-fruit and pink grapefruit balancing refreshing nettle flavours almost pungent in character. The fruit sweetness with crisp supporting acidity is typical of the style.
Most of the grapes were crushed and left in contact with the skins for a few hours to provide strength and fullness of flavour. The juice was then fermented at cool temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters.

Grape Variety: 100 % Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - White New Zealand Wine
From the creators of the original Sauvignon from one of the world's most famous wine regions, Marlborough, New Zealand.
In 1975 we took the pioneering step of planting Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough, formerly a sheep region and one considered too cold for grapes.
We singlehandedly transformed the world of Sauvignon Blanc 40 years ago like no other before or after and continue to produce quality wines that are a true reflection of the region.

Most of the grapes harvested for this wine were gently bag pressed off to achieve fresh, clear and elegant juice. Some were crushed and left in contact with the skins for a few hours to increase the extraction process and to provide strength and fullness of flavour. The juice was then fermented slowly at cool temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters.
Brancott Vineyard is our original Marlborough Vineyard and inspiration behind our name. With its special combination of soil, sun and climate, this is where we first pioneered our country's most internationally-acclaimed varietal - Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Marlborough has had another excellent growing season with dry conditions for most of the harvest. A warm November and December set up good flowering and fruit set, and until mid-February the season was tracking much earlier than the long term average. Although rain was experienced in late April, this had little effect on the vintage as most of the fruit had already been harvested.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years
