When the aromas of chocolate self-saucing pudding and local Marlborough black cherries hit the nose – you’ll be taken back to when your Grandma used to bake the delicious pudding for dessert when you were young. The sweet fruit character of the cherries matches perfectly with the grippy bitterness of the pure cocoa. The palate gives the impression of black Doris plum jam with a toasty oak texture, the drying of the tannins mixes wonderfully with finely balanced spices and fresh acidity you get in a quality homemade jam.

'Robert Mason of Cheese at Leadenhall found a ‘perfumed nose, floral violets with hedgerow and cranberry aromas, good body on the palate with fresh acidity, ripe red fruits, nice richness with finesse and good length’, with team leader Laura Rhys MS commenting on its ‘elegant style’.' -  Sommelier Wine Awards 2018, Silver Medal. 2016 Vintage. 


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.
