User Reviews for Scott Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

Allan Scott Wines is a family owned and operated company established in 1990. Since the first harvesting of Allan Scott Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Allan Scott Wines has developed a solid reputation as one of the region's top producers. Nestled among the company's original 24 hectares of prime vineyard in Jackson Road are the winery and sales centre. Since 1990, the Estate has undergone many changes to obtain the best possible sources of grapes and to build facilities that make use of the very best opportunities of Marlborough's ideal year-round conditions. Vineyards acquired over the past 12 years have increased the Estate holdings to 58 hectares. Quality and absolute dedication to achieving the best is the key to Allan Scott Wines. The company prides itself on the viticultural excellence that starts from the vineyards, extending through to the finished product that is produced in the modern well-equipped winery. New this year is the Italian made screwtop bottling machine. Despite a cool start the vintage of 2009 provided excellent growing conditions at our Chardonnay sites within the Rapaura region, allowing ripe fruit development and balanced acids. This Chardonnay has clean healthy fruit with great acidity and aromas. Fermentation encapsulated these aromas pinpointing lemon citrus notes with slight tropical melon tones and hints of spicey licorice. Lees stirring and indigenous malolactic fermentation delivered a lingering palate with a creamy viscosity backed up by subtle French oak and gun-flinty wild yeast characters on the finish. Designed as a food friendly wine, it is recommended with most rich creamy dishes particularly pasta or chicken or mild creamy coconut curries.
