The Generations Sauvignon Blanc is from the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vineyard on the Allan Scott Family Winemaker Estate. Planted in 1985 opposite Cloudy Bay, this vineyard has been a staple of the Allan Scott blends since 1991.
The fruit is harvested and gently pressed and left to settle overnight before it is racked to stainless tanks then co-fermented with wild and introduced yeast. When the wine is half way through the ferment it is added to barrel. The wine is then lees stirred every few weeks, until it is deemed ready for bottling.
The Generations Sauvignon Blanc is a combination of old world and new world winemaking. The old world brings mellow yeast autolysis and highlights minerality, and the new world brings all the punchy tropical fruit with racy acidity. An enticing wine that is a great play on the typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Great matched with smoked foods or try with Goat’s Cheese.
