I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brancott Estate Wines. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
If I’m going to drink wine, I prefer that it’s white, so when given the opportunity to try Brancott Estate Flight Song wines, I jumped at the chance. I was sent Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, and chose to try the Pinot one night after an especially long day while Aaron was away. Fruity and sweet, I found this wine delicious and refreshing. They recommend drinking it as an aperitif or paired with pork or chicken dishes, but I chose to pair it with Netflix and Tera, the MMORPG I’m currently playing. After a long day (week) the trio really hit the spot.
The first to plant Sauvignon Blanc grapes in the Marlborough region, Brancott Estate are the original when it comes to the iconic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc style. These new Flight Song wines are a contemporary premium range, and unique in that they are full in flavor but with less calories. This is accomplished by harvesting earlier, resulting in a wine that is naturally 20% lighter in calories yet still delivers the taste and aromatics that you’d expect from a high quality wine. Retailing at $14.99, these wines will make the perfect summer beverage to sip, without the guilt!
If you head over to the Brancott Estate’s website, you can learn all about the Flight Song range, including information about the growing season, soil type, wine-making specifics, and of course recommended food pairings for each of the wines. Additionally, they describe their aromas and palates:
Brancott Estate Flight Song Marlborough Pinot Grigio: On the nose this wine presents an array of floral notes with nashi pear and sweet lemon, while white peach and guava create a full palate with ripe, citrus-like acidity.
Brancott Estate Flight Song Marlborough Pinot Grigio: On the nose this wine presents pink grapefruit and passionfruit notes, while a ripe lemon acidity excites the palate.
I’ll be honest, a lot of the wine stuff goes over my head. I don’t know how to compare wines from different regions, or exactly what I’m supposed to be smelling for. But I do know when something tastes good, and I thoroughly enjoyed these wines.

I was sent product samples to facilitate my review. I love coffee. Aaron loves coffee. My older kids love coffee. And at our house, we go through a LOT of K-cups. I like to keep a few staple favorite flavors on hand, but I also like to mix it up a little once in a […][Continue reading...]
It’s that time of the week again! Happy Random Tuesday! I’ve been so behind in my blogging- so many post ideas, so little time. And so many obligations that I’ve procrastinated blogging about… so this week will be catch up week. Now that Aaron’s home, and spring break is over, I hope to get back […][Continue reading...]
Bacon really missed Aaron while he was away. He was been extra cranky a few times, and I think it was because he wanted his daddy. He’s also working on some molars, poor dude. But then Evan and Owen came for spring break, and Aaron came home, so our full house kept Bacon entertained. I […][Continue reading...]
