Allan Scott Family Winemakers vineyards are largely planted on the stony, free draining mid-Wairau Valley river flats. The vineyards are sustainably managed and with the care given during the growing season to produce some of the world’s greatest Sauvignon Blanc wines. The wines tend to be beautifully structured, with lighter aromatics than expected off the heavier clay soils of the lower Wairau plain.
The grapes are machine harvested and immediately pressed in the cool of the night. The juice is maintained at cool temperatures to ensure the aromatics are not lost. Cleared juice is then fermented to dryness at cool temperatures with specifically selected yeasts. The best wine tanks were blended and finished for bottling.
Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit-driven is exciting but subtle. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish. A crisp refreshing wine, that shows the true terroir characters of the soils and area it comes from.
Always sensational with fresh Marlborough seafood, or try with all types of Pacific Rim fare.
