savignon gris Brancott
Not to sure about reviews as I favourabley reviewed a wine once and the following week they sold out never to renew the vintage! This is a big vineyard though and I do not hesitate to say that this is an underrated wine perhaps due to the unusual blend of grape. Very good value for money
The New Sauvignon?
Richer and more voluptuous in texture than Sauvignon Blanc, with ripe fruit flavours of mango and melon as well as citrus and peach. A broader palate and more complex than the Blanc. Do not over chill as this takes a lot out of the wine.
Tried this wine and wasn't expecting to like it! What a mistake - loved it!! Far better than the sauvignon blanc - not so dry! Bought it a few times -particulary good value when it's on offer!
A softer approach ?
If you are looking for an alternative to NZ sauvignon blanc then this could be for you. It is a slightly softer and more rounded wine compared to its more famous cousin and is well worth a good consideration ( especially when on offer ;-) )
Brancott Estate Sauvignon Gris
I just love this wine. I find it less acidic than a sauvignon blanc and with lovely flavour. It was at such a good price that I had to stock up! I'm no wine expert so not going to be able to say what aromas and flavours are present...but I do know what I like and this is it. Will continue to buy this when it's on offer.
Top quality wine
If you like the Brancott Sauvignon Blanc then you will definitely like this. A bit fuller than the Blanc. Very moreish!
I have tried most New Zealand SB's and wanted to try something slightly different and although the flavours are there with this wine, so is an unpleasant after taste of alcohol! It reminds me a bit of years long gone and mixing too much vodka with the orange juice! Currently Brancotts 2016 SB is a much better choice and if you can get it on offer try their Terroir Series SB from 2015 for a treat.
Love this wine which has become a house staple. Fuller bodied and rounder than the Brancott Sauvignon Blanc with a very individual nose.
A Great Discovery
I took a punt on this one as I had never tried it before and I will definately be going back for more it is delicious. The initial hit is as you'd expect from a New Zealand SB with a floral noze and gooseberries but then there's the next element which lingers on the tounge and makes for an interesting and yummy taste sensation a bit sharper and longer than you'd expected but very nice and worth a try
We love Brancott Sauvignon Blanc but since Brancott Gris came to the fore we have to say it has taken over as favourite. Gris has a wonderful taste and is simply delightful.
