Brancott Estate launches late-harvest sauvignon blanc in time for Rugby World Cup


September 8, 2011/20.13

Brancott Estate has not only supported World of Wearable Art, but it’s an official sponsor of New Zealand’s Rugby World Cup 2011, opening Friday.
   The late-harvest sauvignon blanc from the New Zealand winery has arrived in time for kick-off. The Brancott Estate Letter Series B Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2011, to give its full title, was grown at Brancott Vineyard, and according to the winery, has been made from grapes that were left on the vine to sweeten further, condensing its flavours and adding a honeyed hue. The grapes were hand-harvested in May 2011.
   It features aromas of mango, peach and passionfruit; and there are tropical and stone-fruit flavours on the palate.
   The 375 ml bottle retails for NZ$36·99.

  3. Hello old Montana.
    It still saddens me that the Montana name has been replaced by Brancott.

    Why don’t you label all your NZ wines Montana as you do for some of your Sav Blanc.

    I buy other wines now.

  4. I can’t speak for them, Tom, but I understand the problem was that some people could have thought the wine came from Montana (USA). Brancott was always the export name for the US, and the estate was always called Brancott. This year, the company decided it would have to make a choice of one or the other, and Brancott seemed less confusing in the long term.
