Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red in color, the wine has a nose dominated by blackberry, plum and black cherry, coupled with toast and spice from the integrated oak. The palate exhibits the expressive fruit promised by the bouquet, coupled with dark chocolate and a complex, earthy richness.

About Brancott:

The Brancott Winery opened in 1977, making it one of the oldest wineries in Marlborough. From producing one of the world's first grape tipping tanks, the winery has stayed true to its pioneering herigate and embraced innovation. It was one of the first to commercially plant Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough in 1973, at the top of New Zealand's South Island and has been heavily instrumental in developing the region as one of the foremost viticultural regions for Sauvignon Blanc world-wide. At present, Brancott Estate continues to lead with its innovative winemaking approach and passionate commitment to excellence under the stewardship of chief winemaker, Patrick Materman.
