The colour hits us first, a vibrant rose gold colour that gives away the skin contact factor of our Pinot Gris. Pinot Gris is a variety that can have both white and red grapes in a bunch, giving our wine some skin contact makes the brilliant colour. Fortunately, this also helps with aromas and delivers lifted honeysuckle, dew drop melons and a light vanilla marshmallow, like a summer stone fruit cocktail from the pool bar in most Fiji resorts. Delicate ripe peach flavours and a hint of Nashi develop on the palate and the zingy spice like Auntie May’s sweet fruit cobbler adds a mouthfeel and weight to balance it all out leaving your mouth just salivating enough to want more.

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.
