Allan Scott Wines & Estates Ltd is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery group. The company was founded in 1990 although the family's history in winegrowing began in 1975 when they planted their first vineyard as a contract grower. Allan began his viticultural career in 1973 as a vineyard manager for a national wine company until shifting allegiance to a rival company, firstly establishing vineyards in the Rapaura district, then taking a senior role as Viticultural Manager with responsibilities of the group's grape intake from all the New Zealand wine regions, as well as being part of the winemaking team. In 1985 the family decided to sell their original vineyard and purchased a new site in the Rapaura district where they developed their first block of Sauvignon Blanc. One year later they purchased another established vineyard across the road where the winery now stands. Since then the family has acquired more land in close proximity and established further vineyards in the favored areas of the Marlborough province. With almost all of our Estate owned vineyards now producing fruit, we have the ability to take advantage of individual characteristics of each particular vineyard. With different soil types and vine age at particular sites we can obtain a mouth-filling profile of flavors from typical Marlborough herbaceousness, to very ripe tropical flavors.An aromatic mix of green fruit tones with underlying ripe tropical aromas adding complexity. Flavorsome hints of pineapples and passion fruit with mild herbaceous characters. A textured palate giving great mouth feel with an enduring, structured and well balanced finish.The aromatics in this 2011 Sauvignon are distinctly tropical. Indulging the nose the initial sweet passion fruit then gives way to hints of lime, classic gooseberry, and dried herbs. But it is the palate where this wine embodies all that is Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The entry onto the palate is smooth and fruit driven, which accelerates through to a midpalate burst of energy from the firm lively acidity with a lingering mouth-watering finish, leaving the discerned wine drinker simply gagging for more.
