Brancott Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Jan-2014
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on rim. The nose is soft and even with gentle, pungent passionfruit and gooseberry fruit aromas harmoniously entwined, underlined by subtle mineral and fresh herb elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, fresh, lively acidity features on the palate, enhancing the sweetness and succulence of the passionfruit and gooseberry flavours. The mouthfeel is racy and mouthwatering, the acidity tending to dryness and providing a fine, textural line to the palate. The flavours are clear-cut and have a degree of restraint, and lead to an elegant, dry finish. This is an elegant, racy and mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc with restrained and stylish flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Marlborough fruit with a small portion given skin contact, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.8% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Jan 2014 RRP $25.99
