Scott Pinot Noir 2009

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. A cool climate grape, Pinot Noir is particularly suited to the Marlborough region. The aging of our vines and the greater understanding we gain as growers has enabled us to further develop our Pinot Noir style each year and the 2009 vintage is no exception, continuing our aim in developing our own distinctive style. Fruit driven, this Pinot Noir is rich and dark with red cherries, raspberries and violets on the nose, along with well integrated French oak and creaminess from the malolactic fermention. Subtle smoky oak characters and bright berry fruit flavours on the palate and a nice velvety finish make this a delightfully harmonious Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is particularly well matched with lamb and game meats. A very food friendly wine complementing savoury dishes but is also enjoyable on its own.

Allan Scott Wines & Estates Ltd is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery group. The company was founded in 1990 although the family’s history in winegrowing began in 1975 when they planted their first vineyard as a contract grower. Allan began his viticultural career in 1973 as a vineyard manager for a national wine company until shifting allegiance to a rival company, firstly establishing vineyards in the Rapaura district, then taking a senior role as Viticultural Manager with responsibilities of the group’s grape intake from all the New Zealand wine regions, as well as being part of the winemaking team. In 1985 the family decided to sell their original vineyard and purchased a new site in the Rapaura district where they developed their first block of Sauvignon Blanc. One year later they purchased another established vineyard across the road where the winery now stands. Since then the family has acquired more land in close proximity and established further vineyards in the favoured areas of the Marlborough province. The winery facility was architecturally designed and built in 1990, from rammed earth and rough sawn timber for a sophisticated yet rustic appearance. Subsequent additions including the bottling hall, barrel room, and the administration area, as well as the storage warehouse used more traditional building materials The winery is now firmly nestled amongst the prime vineyards in Jackson’s Road surrounded by mature trees and manicured gardens where the Cellar Door shop and Twelve Trees Restaurant complete the facilities available. Since being established, the Estate has undergone many changes to source top quality grapes and to build facilities that make use of the very best opportunities of Marlborough’s ideal year round conditions An ongoing desire to create aromatic estate grown and produced wines is reflected in the expansive range of wines produced at the winery. As the Marlborough region has gained a well deserved reputation as a wine and food haven, Allan Scott Wines has developed its own reputation as a Marlborough icon and a sound name for outstanding wines and fine food. Quality and absolute dedication to achieving the best is the key to Allan Scott Wines. The company prides itself on viticultural excellence, extending through to the finished product. Read less
