Brancott Estate Letter T Pinot Noir is an excellent expression of Brancott's estate vineyard in Marlborough. The palate is complex and velvety with abundant sweet berry fruit, layered with spice and soft savory tannins.
Until the 1970s, Marlborough was just another pretty pocket of New Zealand, considered too cold for anything but sheep grazing. But at Brancott Estate, they’ve always loved a challenge. The founders and Winemakers at Brancott have enjoyed bringing new varietals first to New Zealand, and then to the rest of the world. The Letter T Pinot Noir is a distinctive expression of the region in which it is grown. The goal is consistent: a perfect harmony of flavor, structure and body.Download Fact Sheet
The fruit for this wine is largely sourced from Brancott Estate in a side valley leading off the southern Wairau valley. The soil is high in clay content and the characterizing the Pinot Noir from this side of the valley for their fleshy and textural nature on the palate. All of the fruit for this wine was allowed to wild ferment, ensuring good color and tannin weight, with a post-fermentation maceration period softening and integrating those tannins. 30% new French oak was used to age this wine for eleven months. Drink now or cellar for up to six years for additional savory complexity.Download Fact Sheet
This wine is great for dinner parties and exploring a Pinot Noir from a less expected region. Letter T Pinot Noir would pair well with duck, or a rich meat ragu. As the wine ages, the earthy truffle notes that emerge will lend well to mushroom and root vegetable dishes.Download Fact Sheet
