Special Price £12.99

A powerful wine with passion fruit, citrus and herbs on the nose. Maturation in old French oak barrels and regular battonage creates complexity and creaminess balanced with typical Marlborough acidity.

Description

"The wild fermentation in oak barriques tricks the uninitiated into thinking this is going to be a smorgasboard of fleshy stone fruit with just a hint of the expected capsicum and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc characters. The oak fermentation has also imparted some coconut spice, and there are hints of butterscotch. Sauvignon Blanc however, returns in force to electrify the palate entry with the fresh fruity “zingyness” synonymous Marlborough Sauvignon, leaving the palate cleansed and excited for more. This wine is tight, yet complex, elegant, yet expressive of the winemaking techniques."

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.
