Product information

Description

Bold, ripe aromas of fresh cut grass and passion fruit. A dry, fresh, fruit driven wine with intense flavours.

Brancott Estate wines are considered the benchmark of New Zealand varietal winemaking and have an international reputation for quality and consistency. The wines are crafted in a style that epitomises the unique character and flavour of the growing region. As the original pioneers of this region, Brancott Estate's understanding of Marlborough and the variety is unparalleled. They have unrivalled experience in harnessing the potential of its three main subregions. 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:

Sauvignon Blanc

Vinification Details:

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.

History:

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.

Regional Information:

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.
