Notes from the Winemaker:
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 to produce some of the world’s 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 plain.

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. The best wine tanks were blended and finished for bottling.

Tasting Notes
Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit-driven is exciting but subtle. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish. A crisp refreshing wine, that shows the true terroir characters of the soils and area it comes from.

Food Pairing
Always sensational with fresh Marlborough seafood, or try with all types of Pacific Rim fare.

ABV 11.77%



Ratings & Reviews

93 Points, Smart Buy & #1 Value of 2021 - Wine Spectator:
"Strikes a terrific balance between mouthwatering acidity, fresh herbal notes of lemon verbena and thyme, and core flavors of key lime, meyer lemon, pineapple and tangerine. Gains momentum on the finish, where the flavors sing in harmony and complexity." -MaryAnn Worobiec (Nov 2021)

94 Points - Sam Kim:
"Fresh and gorgeously lifted, the bouquet shows Granny Smith apple, rockmelon, fig and kaffir lime notes, leading to a powerfully expressed palate offering excellent varietal purity and persistency. Wonderfully flavoursome and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2024." (Aug 2021)

9/10 Points - Vinography:
“Pale straw in color, this wine smells of candied green apples and freshly mown lawns. In the mouth, bright green apple and gooseberry flavors mix with a touch of passionfruit that lingers pure and bright in the finish. Very good acidity and just a faint, faint salinity.”

Bloomberg:
“This mouth-watering, fruit- and herb-driven white is a top example of New Zealand’s entry level ‘savvies,’ from the region that launched the style.”
Epoch Times:
“This delightful New Zealand import comes from a region that normally displays more of the gooseberry, new-mown hay, and distinctive “cat box” aromas. But this winery is one of the oldest in the area and the vines are some of the oldest in New Zealand, dating back nearly 50 years. That has given Allan and his family great knowledge on how to grow the fruit so it delivers more complexity, such as Asian pear and subtle spices. Best with seafood. Simply superb.”
