Allan Scott Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2008
With all of our Estate owned vineyards now producing fruit, we are able 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 flavours from typical Marlborough herbaceousness, to very ripe tropical flavours.
Truly a variety that is made in the vineyard, clean and ripe fruit will always produce great Sauvignon Blanc. After pressing, the wine is chilled and allowed to settle over a 24 hour period. The wine is then racked, inoculated and fermented at cool temperatures for 15-20 days. After fermentation and maturation the various tanks are brought together to make a final blend.
An fragrant mix of pineapple and passionfruit tropical aromas with underlying ripe citrus characters adding complexity to the nose. On the palate, again a flavoursome array of pineapples and passionfruit, with a zesty citrus essence of orange and lime. Texture from the fruit concentration gives this wine great mouthfeel with a mouthwatering acid backbone creating an enduring, structured and well balanced finish.
Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed on many occasions: either on its own as an aperitif, or accompanied by seafood and salad dishes. Serve lightly chilled.
