Bristed Brothers is a gorgeously fresh Marlborough Sauvignon, a new release that with one sniff gets your mouth watering. 2020 was a great, albeit small vintage so flavour is intense. Oodles of juicy guava and tangy mango fruit, zipped by lime.
The Bristed Brothers are a bit of a legend in Marlborough. For one thing, they planted vineyards way before any one else, so these vines are some of the oldest in the region. They are also, at 70, renowned for some crazy capers. They sail boats down the local Taylor river and sometimes take to the sky in a biplane they built themselves! They've been selling their grapes to a famous cellar for years, but were hugely excited about the proposition of having their own name on the label. Launched in 2019, this is the second release from the small, but very high quality 2020 harvest, so expect an abundance of gorgeous ripe guava, mango and lime fruit. Chill down well and enjoy a large, refreshing glassful on its own or with spicy stir fry.
"This is just superb! And up against stiff competition amongst my favourites"
