Winemaker's Notes

The 2003 Brancott Reserve balances fresh fruit flavors and the refreshingly crisp acidity that are the hallmark of exceptional Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of guava, stone fruit a lemongrass are highlighted by sweet green pepper. The palate is rich and smooth with ripe stone fruit flavors that are complimented by herbal notes

The grapes for Brancott Vineyards Reserve Sauvignon Blanc are harvested predominantly from the Brancott Estate vineyard on the southeastern side of the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. The Wairau Valley is protected by mountain ranges to the north and west, and by the Kaikoura Mountains to the south. Brancott Estate is in a small side valley facing north which receives maximum sunshine. The soils of the vineyard are derived from glacial outwash material and can generally be described as silt loam overlying gravels and rocks. These soils are low in fertility and have a low water holding capacity. Viticultural practices applied in the vineyard assist in flavor development and include techniques such as specialized trellising, trimming of the vines and removal of leaves in the fruit zone to allow sunlight exposure.
