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 produce some of the world’s greatest wines.

Wine Spectator 93 points

Stylish, generous and intense, featuring lemon curd, apricot and lime sherbet flavors that are vivid and mouthwatering, accented by details of matcha green tea, white pepper and passion fruit. Shows excellent follow-through on the finish. Drink now. From New Zealand.

VITICULTURE

The 2019 growing season was warmer and less windy than usual. This meant during the crucial flowering stage, pollination was a lot lighter than usual. Fortunately, we had the ability to call on Allan Scott and his 44yrs of growing grapes and making wine across the country. Careful planning and meticulous attention in the vineyard kept our grapes growing to their full potential. We’ve been pleased with the quality of good, evenly ripened fruit with solid brix numbers across the varieties

VINIFICATION

The highly skilled and multinational team in the winery have produced another fantastic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. 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. We then selected the pick of the tanks for blending into a wonderful fresh expression for bottling.

DESCRIPTION

Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish, this wine will take you straight back to the warmer summer days.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Always sensational with fresh Marlborough seafood, or try with all types of Pacific Rim fare.
