Allan Scott, Scott Base Central Otago Chardonnay

NZE062

£18.00

Quick Overview

Aromas of citrus and ripe white peach with nutty notes and toasty oak. Lifted fresh grapefruit and citrus on the palate with tightly structured minerality and overlying hints of grapefruit. Still very youthful with plenty of promise for the future. Try with rich creamy dishes, mild coconut curries or a beautiful brie. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years, will evolve and age very well.

Details

The Scott family, owners of Allan Scott Family Winemakers, have long had an affinity with Central Otago. The Scott Base Vineyard was established in 1994 and is situated in the heart of Central Otago on terraces overlooking the town of Cromwell and Lake Dunstan.

Scott Base is a terraced vineyard with sandy, silty, loam soil, and sustainably managed. The vines are spur pruned and the laterals removed to encourage the vine to concentrate on fruit production.

Each batch of selected grapes was harvested in the cool of the morning, pressed, and the juice settled at cool temperatures. This was then barrel fermented using wild yeasts. When the alcoholic fermentation is near completion the wine is allowed to go through a full malolactic fermentation and then a further maturation in barrels with regular lees stirring.

Aromas of citrus and ripe white peach with nutty notes and toasty oak. Lifted fresh grapefruit and citrus on the palate with tightly structured minerality and overlying hints of grapefruit. Still very youthful with plenty of promise for the future. Try with rich creamy dishes, mild coconut curries or a beautiful brie. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years, will evolve and age very well.
