Brancott wines are considered the benchmark of New Zealand winemaking as the winery was the first producer to plant Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough to create the classic, world-renowned style.
The Brancott Estate Letter Series is our top varietal range. Hand-crafted and centred upon grapes grown on our very best vineyards, each wine is made in a distinctive style to reflect not only the flavours of the region, but also the fine art of winemaking. Vinted only in exceptional years, Brancott Estate Letter Series wines are given bottle ageing appropriate to the varietal prior to release, thereby ensuring optimal drinking.
The range of winemaking techniques has resulted in a complex wine displaying intense passionfruit, white peach and guava characters on the nose, with a touch of smoky oak. The palate is richly textured with grapefruit and stone fruit characters, in addition to a wonderful minerality all bound together by a crisp acidity and a lingering finish.
