Vintage: 2009
Type: Pinot Noir
Country: New Zealand – Marlborough

This is another wine that I sampled at the Tesco Wine Fair 2011 and I just had to buy a case. At first sip, I fell in love with the Burgundy-style wine. This is Brancott’s 7th iteration off this flagship T wine (its predecessor won several Silver medals at international competitions) and it does not disappoint. Enjoy this wine with a rich meal, like a creamy mushroom risotto with venison sausages. That would be excellent!

Technical Review

Clear, deep Garnet.


Clean, pronounced aromas of cherry, vanilla and spice. Some plummy notes.


Medium-high acidity. Light tannins. Medium body. Flavour characteristics of ripe cherries and hints of mocha.

Very Good.
