2011 Brancott Estate, Letter Series, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough

( £16, 9.5%, Brancott Estate Shop )

Interesting to see New Zealand’s biggest producer branching out into the production of high end, late picked dessert-style Sauvignon Blanc and selling it on line through its own channels. The result is very tasty, with syrupy, but not cloying flavours of exotic mango and pink grapefruit, light alcohol and well judged sweetness.
