Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of cherries, raspberries and violets which marry well with the new French oak and a creamy malolactic subtleness. The smoky oak is prevalent but does not dominate allowing the fruit to express itself. Elegant raspberry and cherry flavors on the palate with a nice structural balance of acids, tannins and oak combined with malolactic richness.

Particularly well matched with lamb and game meats. Enjoy with savory dishes or on its own. Best served at room temperature and given a little time to breathe. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years.

My Notes:

About Allan Scott:

Founded in 1990, Allan Scott Wines and Estates is owned and operated by Catherine and Allan Scott. It has extensive vineyards in the Jacksons Road area near Cloudy Bay in Marlborough. This being the most glamorous wine growing district in New Zealand.

Allan Scott was involved in establishing the first vineyards in Marlborough in 1973, before investing in vineyards of his own. (Mr. Marlborough) Allan Scott is now one of the country's 21 largest wine producers and is the largest family-owned, Marlborough based winery.

Allan Scott's winery shows the modern face of New Zealand wine making. A modern, up to date vineyard and winery is complimented with a sophisticated restaurant and the family owned business is expanding rapidly.

The key characteristic of the region is the rocky soil, combined with the clear intense light of the micro-climate, contributes to the distinctive flavors of the wines.

Allan Scott produces a range of white wines that are pure Marlborough - fresh appetizingly crisp and awash with flavor. A commitment and passion for quality have resulted in many award-winning vintages for the company.
