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.

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


Ratings & Reviews:

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
The Key lime, dried pineapple and passion fruit flavors at the core of this white show terrific purity, with a lip-smacking mix of crunchy sea salt, toasted herb and tropical notes. Reveals intense acidity on the long finish. Drink now. 2,222 cases made.

91 Points - Vinous:
The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Kekerengu is full of personality and zest. It offers up an intriguing array of herbs and exotic fruit flavors from pine and fennel to honeydew melon. It's intense and focused with an attractive, racy finish reminiscent of a salted lemon. It keeps you going back for more.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
The Sauvignon from this sea-swept vineyard is distinct. It's round, ripe and bone-dry. Notes of nectarine, lime popsicle, pineapple, honeysuckle and dried herbs are ensconced in a broad, mouthcoating texture, sliced and diced with rapier, herb-flecked acidity. There's a long pineapple rind finish and a structure that suggests it's only just getting started. Drink toward the end of 2023–2030.
