Allan Scott, Scott Base Central Otago Chardonnay 2010
The 2010 Scott Base Chardonnay offers the regions natural acid content giving a wine with aromas of citrus and stone fruits, integrated with an creamy softening effect of the 100% malolactic fermentation. To add to the complexity it was fermented using indigenous yeast with a high percent of lees for structure, in a mixture of old and new 500 litre puncheons. Powerful yet reserved with complex personalities and a finish as persistent as a sandfly.
