When you're on the flip side of the world you can't help but think a little differently. And lucky we did otherwise we might not have founded New Zealand's great wine region, Marlborough.
This Sauvignon Blanc is as crisp as a frosty morning and with passionfruit and grapefruit notes, is a great match with seafood, grilled chicken, summer greens and good company.
When we say this wine is a classic and one of the originals, we mean it. Brancott was the very first to produce Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough, an area once thought to be too cold for winegrowing. We all know how that turned out! In any case, let's check out the wine.
The 2020 Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc begins with a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc aroma full of grapefruit and grass plus some more subtle touches of lemon and pear.
The wine tastes just like you would expect, which is very good. Full of rich fruit similar to the nose and with a nice, crisp texture this is quite satisfying.
It ends crisp and dry with some lingering grassiness and tropical fruit on the long, lip-smacking finish.
