A luxurious New Zealand Marlborough Chardonnay, displaying typical mineral notes from the Wairau Valley. The stone fruit, pear and almond aromas are rounded off with a scrumptious mouth feel from its time in oak. Long and fresh lingering finish.
Allan Scott Family Winemakers cellar is situated on Jackson road, across the vineyards of Cloudy Bay. Allan Scott’s vineyards are largely planted on the stony, free draining mid-Wairau Valley river flats. The vineyards are sustainably managed, and with the care given during the growing season produce some of the world’s greatest wines. The chardonnay grapes were handpicked and pressed immediately into a stainless steel tank for a quick settling period (6 hours) before hard racking. The wine is then inoculated and the fermenting juice was transferred to 500L French oak vats. After 8 months the wine was pumped out of barrel and into a tank to fine and filter for bottling. Lastly, the Allan Scott picked out the two top barrels and expertly blended the wine to give it a perfectly balanced taste with the aim to produce the best representation of New Zealand Marlborough Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay will match perfectly seafood chowder, avocado, tuna steak . It is also flawlessly delicious on its own .
