Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wild fermentation in oak barriques tricks the uninitiated into thinking this is going to be a smorgasboard of fleshy stone fruit with just a hint of the expected capsicum and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc characters. The oak

fermentation has also imparted some coconut spice, and there are hints of butterscotch.

Palate

Sauvignon Blanc however, returns in force to electrify the palate entry with the fresh fruity “zingyness” synonymous Marlborough Sauvignon, leaving the palate cleansed and excited for more. This wine is tight, yet complex, elegant, yet expressive of the winemaking techniques.

Food Matching

The 2011 Moorlands Sauvignon Blanc will improve with 4 months aging following the bottling date. From there the wine will open up to reveal its inner self. Serve lightly chilled with seared fish steaks or pork slices. Enjoy!

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Our family has a reputation of producing wines consistent in flavour and quality year after year. We attribute our success to excellent growing conditions, hard work and a desire to produce the world's best wines.

Allan Scott Family Winery has several vineyards situated in two of the world’s most prestigious growing regions - Marlborough and Central Otago, New Zealand. As the owners of our own vineyards and winery we have control of our product, from the growing on our vines and the harvesting of our grapes to the bottling and marketing of our wines.

MARLBOROUGH

The Allan Scott Family Winery Marlborough vineyards are situated close to our winery and restaurant complex in the Rapaura area of the Wairau Plains. The gravelly soils that predominate are perfectly suited to the production of the aromatics; Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewürztraminer. Traditionally made Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is also produced.

CENTRAL OTAGO

Situated in breathe taking scenery on the main road between Wanaka and Queenstown the Allan Scott Family Winery, Scott Base, grows predominantly Pinot Noir, with small plots of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.
