The deep purple/garnet colour reflects the intensity of this wine, presenting lifted dark cherry and blueberry aromas with delicate floral undertones and subtle hints of mocha and smoky oak to add to the complexity. The palate is rich and velvety, full of sweet berry fruit flavours, finishing with complex layers of spice and soft savoury tannins.
Created by the Pioneers of the original Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

100% Pinot Noir - Red New Zealand Wine
From the creators of the original Sauvignonc from one of the world's most famous wine regions, Marlborough, New Zealand.
In 1975 we took the pioneering step of planting Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough, formerly a sheep region and one considered too cold for grapes.
We singlehandedly transformed the world of Sauvignon Blanc 40 years ago like no other before or after and continue to produce quality wines that are a true expression of the region.

Preparation and Usage
This wine is a great match with lean game meats such as venison, wild pork or duck and with time in bottle its underlying earthiness will lend well to dishes based around mushrooms.
Delivers an intense concentration of flavours with complexity and a harmonious balance between the richness of the dark berry fruits and black plum aromas overlying complex, spicy oak highlights and silky tannins.

Brancott Vineyard is our original Marlborough Vineyard and inspiration behind our name. With its special combination of soil, sun and climate, this is where we first pioneered our country's most internationally-acclaimed varietal - Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
The season began with a very cool October and an average November/December. The cool weather reduced the potential yield of the vines and gave a highly-desired natural crop reduction. As the season progressed, the summer and harvest period was remarkably dry. The settled, dry weather allowed for blocks to be picked in optimal condition throughout the harvest period and some fabulous fruit was received into the winery
After harvesting, the grapes were destemmed and underwent a five-day cold soak prior to fermentation. This was carried out in open-topped fermenters, using plunging to provide gentle extraction. The wine was drained and racked to barrels for malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the acidity.
