"This is the original Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. We were first to recognize Marlborough’s potential for exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, planting the varietal on Brancott Vineyard. Aromas of ripe lemongrass and tropical rock melon are immediately apparent, allied with a range of sweet tropical top notes. Brancott Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a fruit-driven wine crafted in a style that epitomizes the character and flavor of the Marlborough region. It justly deserves its international reputation for quality and consistency."
The wine is pale straw in colour with green highlights. Aromas of rock melon, lemongrass and ripe gooseberry
dominate with top notes ranging from tropical grapefruit to sweet capsicum adding interest to the nose. This wine displays hints of pungency in conjunction with full fruit intensity. Overall, this is a well-balanced wine showing palate weight, sweet fruit flavours and the crisp, expressive acidity associated with this style.
