Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet red in color, this wine exhibits cherry, plum and blackberry fruits accentuated with savory spice highlights. It has a fleshy mid-palate displaying ripe cherry, subtle spice and rich velvety tannins, with fruit weight carrying the full length of the palate to its finish.

The beauty of Pinot Noir is that it is always approachable when young, so this wine can be enjoyed upon release, but it nevertheless has sufficient tannin structure to enable it to develop and evolve with a further two or three years ageing. As with all Pinot Noir, it will perfectly suit duck dishes and red meat dishes incorporating mushrooms.

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.
