Brancott Estate introduced the world to New Zealand’s signature wine style by planting the first Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough in the early 1970’s. Back then, conventional wisdom in the New Zealand wine industry was that grapes would not ripen on the South Island. Brancott Estate disregarded that “wisdom” and planted vines in Marlborough on a grand scale.
Marlborough’s combination of a dry, sunny climate, combined with cool nights and limited rainfall during the growing season, creates near perfect cool-climate grape-growing conditions. These perfect conditions allow grapes to ripen at a slow pace, building rich, intense fruit flavors. The resulting crisp, fresh and aromatic wines created by Brancott Estate have become the benchmark style of New Zealand winemaking.
