Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Ruby red.

Aromas: Lifted blackberry and dark cherry aromas overlay spicy aromas from oak maturation.

Palate: Supple approach showing generous, dark cherry flavors, and silky tannins balanced with spicy oak. A hint of dry herb, savory complexity completes the palate.

Cellaring: A wine blended for early drinking, but will age gracefully over the next three years.

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.
