Aromas of butterscotch and pecan crumble over white flesh nectarines and the freshness of a pineapple Fruju down by the Wairau River in the summertime. Add in the smokey overtones and a creaminess that layers over the lingering pineapple backed up by the heirloom grapefruit fresh from the backyard. These characters all combine their unique acid profiles that blend to give this Marlborough Chardonnay its unique fruit forward freshness, yet still, speak to its classical French inspiration.
Definitely one we would share with anything from grilled crispy skin salmon, wood roasted rotisserie chicken or even a slow cooked BBQ rolled pork roast.
The Allan Scott Méthode Traditionnelle has built itself a highly deserved reputation since our first wine was made back in 1996.
A white gold colour, this Blanc de Blancs has a fine mousse with distinctive lemon flavours and a light touch of tropical fruit, developing delightful honeycomb autolysis characteristics. Seductive on the palate, the seamless integration between the fruit concentration and the acidity makes for a mouthwatering finish with good length.
Cecilia Vintage Méthode Traditionnelle can be enjoyed on almost every occasion, whether for a celebration, as an aperitif to a meal or simply to enjoy with friends. Best served chilled.
