Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Our Products: Wine Selection > New Zealand

The name Montana was first used by Yugoslavian immigrant Ivan Yukich for the wine he made in the Waitakere Ranges west of Auckland, where he settled on a small block of land in Scenic Drive in 1934. Because of the elevation of the site, the vineyard was given the name "Montana", which means mountain. The Yukiches were wholly absorbed in wine production, with Ivan's sons, Mate and Frank, taking active roles in the business. Mate Yukich assumed the role of viticulturist, while Frank became winemaker and salesman. The first wines were sold in 1944, with more grapes planted with each successive year. By 1960, ten hectares were planted. In 1961 the sons set up their own company, Montana Wines Limited. Over the next twenty five years it grew to be the largest in New Zealand. Brancott Estate classic wines are considered the benchmark of New Zealand varietal winemaking and have an international reputation for quality and consistency. The wines are crafted in a style that epitomises the unique character and flavour of the region.

The wine is pale straw in colour with green highlights. Aromas of rock melon, lemongrass and ripe gooseberry dominate with top notes ranging from tropical grapefruit to sweet capsicum adding interest to the nose. This wine displays hints of pungency in conjunction with full fruit intensity. Overall, this is a well-balanced wine showing palate weight, sweet fruit flavours and the crisp, expressive acidity associated with this style.
