2014 Brancott Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
The 2014 vintage of this wine was exactly as expected – signature New Zealand citrus and grassiness with loads of acidity at a good price ($8.99, consistent with last year). My review of the 2013 vintage of this wine sums up my feelings this year too.
These are nice wines, perfect for summer weather, but they typically possess too much bite to enjoy with most meals. This is one of those rare wines that I prefer to drink without food. For fans of this style of wine, this is a good buy along with the similarly priced Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc.
