Expert Reviews

Rating 85 Hyper musky aromatics, some spice, candied apple and lemon. Very sweet lemony acidity- like a lemon sherbet lolly - spicy and slightly chalky on the finish. Some green herbal characters. All arms and legs, but chilled down would be pretty easy to knock off. Rating 85 - Drink by 2014 - 2016, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (OCT.2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

This wine displays fresh and ripe stone fruit aromas of nectarine and peaches with Nashi pear and underlying

tropical rockmelon aromas, which follow through to the palate.

Palate

The palate is full and weighty with subtle spicy notes of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Cellaring Potential

This wine is best enjoyed young or could be cellared over the next two years if bottle-developed characters

are desired.

Food Matching

Serve slightly chilled on its own or with delicate white meat,pasta or seafood dishes.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

While we craft wines from vineyards throughout New Zealand, Brancott Estate™ wines (formerly known as 'Montana' wines) are named in honour of our Marlborough roots - taking their name from our cherished Brancott Vineyard. With its special combination of soil, sun and climate, this is where we first planted our most famous varietal; Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Although our name has changed, you can be assured that the distinctive and uniquely New Zealand wine in the bottle will remain the same - as will the location of our inspirational home where it all began.

In 1973, Brancott Vineyard was the site of our first Sauvignon Blanc plantings in Marlborough – a decision that went against the popular opinion of the time that suggested the South Island was too cold to grow wine grapes. We soon proved this wasn’t the case with our very first vintage of the varietal winning an award.

The release of the first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc vintage in 1979 was the beginning of a phenomenon which, not only placed New Zealand firmly on the international wine map, but has since become a shining example of the quality of wine that can be produced from this land.

Today, Brancott Vineyard continues to be a source of inspiration for our winemakers, not only proving that anything is possible, but that our belief in this land and our knowledge to obtain the best from it can result in award-winning wines enjoyed the world over.
