Aromas of citrus and stone fruits, integrated with an creamy softening effect of the 100% malolactic fermentation. To add to the complexity it was fermented using indigenous yeast with a high percent of lees for structure. Powerful yet reserved with complex characteristics and a persistent finish.

Food Matching

Great on its own but a very food friendly wine. Try with rich creamy dishes, mild coconut curries or a beautiful brie. Will evolve and age very well.

Vintage notes:

Each batch of selected grapes was harvested in the cool of the morning, pressed, and the juice settled at cool temperatures. This was then barrel fermented using wild yeasts on solids, in French oak at cool temperatures. When the alcoholic fermentation is near completion the wine is allowed to go through a full malolactic fermentation and then a further maturation in barrels with regular lees stirring.

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.
