Disclosure: I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for Brancott Estate Wines. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation
By now you all know my deep love of wine. Over the years I have concentrated heavily upon the California Wine Regions, but recently I heard about Brancott Estates Flight Song, and had to give it a go for a few reasons:
I’ve been hearing GREAT things about the Australian and New Zealand Wine Regions.
Brancott Estates is the first known wine developer of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc coming out of New Zealand. Being a HUGE Sauvignon Blanc fan I had to try out their wine to truly taste the difference.
Upon my first glass being poured:
I soon smelled the wine. Right away, it was a different fragrance from what I was use to from Sauvignon Blancs out of the California Wine Regions, but very pleasant. Then, I took the first sip and could truly taste the difference. Hints of Grapefruit and Passionfruit with a hint of lemon lie in this wine making a very pleasant wine to drink during those hot summer days.
But what makes Flight Song unique compared to other Brancott Estate wines? These wines were crafted to be 20% lighter in calories making one feel less guilty over a glass of wine enjoyed at home.
Flight Song also has a Pinot Grigio varietal of wine that showcases hints of lemon, white peach, and guava creating quite the delicious flavor.
These wines are truly meant to be enjoyed outside on a summer day’s, or for a fun picnic out in the grass.
