To prepare, a little background on Brancott. Thirty years ago, some very curious winemakers at New Zealand's Brancott Estate planted the very first Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough. The rest is history. Brancott keeps the process simple—slow, cool fermentation—to retain the crisp fruit flavors of the grape. Tastes of cut grass and gooseberry amount, with riper styles displaying hints of melon, nectarine or passionfruit, perfect for summer dining. Enjoy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with tangy food—avocado, oysters, trout, salmon, mussels, crayfish or salads.
