It is fresh, zesty, juicy and full. This fruit-driven new world style wine is what we all come to love and expect of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It is the reason why one of our winemakers – Bruce Abbott joined the industry. “Pure NZ summer in a glass”, would be his way of describing it.

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 produce some of the world’s greatest wines.

The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is an early release vineyard off our Millstone block, one of the earlier planted blocks in Marlborough it’s in the heart of Rapaura.
Wines from this area are grown in very alluvial soils that produce wines with brilliant acidity and purity.

Harvest 2020 was unpredictable. Right at the start, we had the CV-19 lockdown introduced, so we had to adapt to the newest ways. Once all systems in place, we went out “all harvesters shaking” and picked all our fruit. In hindsight, after seeing what fruit came in, it has been a super harvest, maybe one of the better ones Marlborough has seen for the last 20 years.

Great sunshine hours, low disease pressure, light crops, and ripe fruit, all come together to produce some outstanding fruit and in turn some great wines.

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

“It’s intensely aromatic and instantly appealing on the nose showing grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, nectarine and lime peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that’s lively and flavoursome. It’s punchy and vibrant with excellent varietal purity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2023.”
