This part of New Zealand in the Brancott Estate range has a reputation for producing consistent quality and this wine resembles that remark at a price that cannot be beat. You will love the fresh and elegant non-oaked style this Sauvignon blanc has to offer—zesty lemon and grapefruit with hints of peach and a touch of grass. It is a very direct, fruit driven wine with lots of style and finesse. If you are looking for a few food-pairing suggestions, try white fish. The producer also recommends hummus, olives and feta—sounds like a tasty match as well. And before I forget, if you have a smartphone, check out the handy neck tag and scan the QR code. They have a mobile app that is pretty cool!
