Vineyard: Allan Scott Family Winemakers 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 worlds greatest Sauvignon Blanc wines. The wines tend to be beautifully structured, with lighter aromatics than expected off the heavier clay soils of the lower Wairau plains.
Vinification: The grapes are machine harvested and immediately pressed. 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. The best wine tanks were blended and finished for bottling.
Bouquet: Fresh citrus and nettles with hints of passionfruit.
Palate: The citrus and passionfruit follows through to the palate with hints of dried herbs. The wine is perfectly balanced with lovely texture and an appealing finish.
