Brancott Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc is grown almost everywhere in New Zealand, but its in Marlborough that this variety finds its finest expression of anywhere in the world. Winemaking influences are kept to a minimum. Slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel retains the crisp fruit flavours. Cellaring is normally avoided to retain the youthful freshness of the wine. Tastes like cut grass, gooseberry, capsicum/bell pepper, with riper styles displaying melon, nectarine or passionfruit. Enjoy with tangy food avocado, oysters, trout, salmon, mussels, crayfish or salads.
