Citrusy and intense Sauvignon Blanc produced at the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand by the Allan Scott family . Fresh, zesty, juicy and full of tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit. the natural acidity of sauvignon blanc produces a refreshing finish that will leave you wanting to pour yourself another glass. A true category benchmark.
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 2019 growing season was warmer and less windy than usual. This meant during the crucial flowering stage, pollination was a lot lighter than usual. Careful planning and meticulous attention in the vineyard kept the grapes growing to their full potential. The grapes are machine harvested and immediately pressed in the cool of the night. The juice is maintained at cool temperatures to ensure the aromatics are not lost. Cleared juice is then fermented to dryness at cool temperatures with specifically selected yeasts. Each tank is then tasted individually and blended accordingly to produce the best expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Always sensational with fresh seafood, or classic fish and chips.

‘Supple and succulent, offering a generous and juicy mix of passion fruit, Key lime and ruby grapefruit flavors. Expressive and strong on the finish, with touches of freshly grated ginger and green tea. Drink now.’
