Expect cherries, black doris plums and a maple savoury character on the nose. The ripe and sumptuous concentrated fruit is supported by subtle notes of oak.

A great wine with red meats, especially gamey food.
Description
Carefully handpicked, the fruit is gently de-stemmed to produce as many whole berries as possible. Cold soaked, then warmed gently, it goes through a wild fermentation. After peaking at a top temperature of 29⁰C, it is hand plunged two to four times per day to keep the skins in contact with the fermenting juice. The wine is then cooled by itself, where it is left to macerate on skins for another 7 days. This helps to soften the wine ensuring optimum flavour and integrated tannin extraction. The wine is then drained off skins, left to settle before it’s racked to 100% new French oak puncheons. It is then left to age for 12 months with natural malolactic fermentation occurring.

The wine finishes very smoothly with refined ripe, light tannins providing structure and a smooth silky long flavourful finish. A great wine on a cold winter’s day or matched with red meats, especially gamey food.

ALLAN SCOTT – UK AGENCY EXCLUSIVE

Our friend, Allan Scott is one of the iconic figures in the short history of the wine trade in Marlborough. As a viticulturalist, he was deeply involved in the first plantings of vineyards there for the two leading companies of the time, Corbans and Montana. In 1990, he launched his own venture, using grapes from his own vineyards on the prestigious Jacksons road, opposite those of Cloudy Bay.

 

They are a Kiwi family operated business who are passionate about their products to ensure you have a memorable experience with each wine, whatever your taste. The Scott name is on the bottle, so the family stands behind everything they make.

 

He produces a selection of aromatic varietals to complement his already sought after sauvignon Blanc and Pinot noir. More recently he established the Scott Base winery in Central Otago. A true family affair, Allan still runs the company alongside Catherine, his wife and their children.

 

In the 2011 Air New Zealand Wine Awards the Hounds Pinot noir received a Gold medal, and Allan was rewarded for his wine industry by being given the order of merit for his services to the new Zealand wine trade. Yet still he pioneers onwards – such is his passion for wine.
