Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of cherry and red berry fruit dominate with complex, spicy notes apparent. This wine, considered the entry point of quality New Zealand Pinot Noir, is made from Marlborough fruit accented with fruit from other regions across the South Island, bringing together positive attributes from all the contributing regions. This wine displays true Pinot Noir typicity. The ripe cherry flavors meld well with supporting complexity, including a hint of oak spice. A well-balanced wine showing lively fruit and the velvet structure associated with this variety.

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.
