Brancott Estate creates a masterpiece
The Marlborough-based wine brand’s latest design partnership sees Benjamin dissecting the Marlborough landscape currently depicted on the Brancott Estate label, as well as the lively flavors and aromas of the ever popular Brancott Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Among the designs, Benjamin says: âI wanted to bring the personality of the Brancott Estate to life with vibrant colors and my contemporary style, using distinctive geometric shapes. “
The artwork on the bottle labels reflects the wine inside which is bursting with grapefruit, melon and passion fruit flavors balanced by the fresh, racy acidity that is the hallmark of the Marlborough region . The 2018 vintage was awarded gold at both the New Zealand International Wine Show 2018 and the New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards 2018. Patrick materman, the head winemaker of the Brancott estate says: âThe Brancott estate is known for creating wines that are fresh, lively and bursting with flavor. It is exciting to see how Benjamin interpreted the flavors of wine using pinks and yellows, as well as capturing the geometry and colors of our Marlborough vineyards, New Zealand. “
The 2018 Brancott Estate Limited Edition Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc will be available in the United States from the end of May, wherever Brancott Estate wines are sold.
