Winemaker's Notes

2010 was a magnificent vintage with the fruit ripened to perfect conditions. This impressive, fullbodied Sauvignon Blanc is handcrafted from grapes grown on our key Marlborough vineyards that have delivered a rich, expressive and flavorsome wine.

The wine is light straw in color with green highlights. Intense passionfruit and red capsicum aromas abound with hints of fennel notes. The palate is rich and oily supported by stone fruit notes and a tantalising minerality. This wine shows a fantastic equilibrium of concentrated fruit flavours and zesty acidity.

Cellaring and Food Matching: It would be hard to go past New Zealand green-lipped mussels cooked à la marinière, with Brancott Estate Reserve Sauvignon Blanc in the dish as well as served in the glass. Though made to drink whilst it is young and vivacious, this wine may be cellared for up to three years to develop further complexity.

Critical Acclaim

"This clean sauvignon has lightly floral scents of passionfruit and a crisp green edge of rocket. It’s a pretty wine with savory depth to the flavors, lasting on pithy lemon and lime. For crab."
