Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand

Our most popular New Zealand Sauvignon by far…and with good reason.

Wine Spectator 93:

This leaps out of the glass, with expressive, intense fruit flavors of silky smooth lemon meringue, mango, tangerine and fresh-cut apple. Candied ginger and green tea notes join a detail of salted lime before lingering on the mouthwatering finish.

And New Zealand’s Wine Orbit:

Fresh and gorgeously lifted, the bouquet shows Granny Smith apple, rockmelon, fig and kaffir lime notes, leading to a powerfully expressed palate offering excellent varietal purity and persistency. Wonderfully flavoursome and highly enjoyable.

Marlborough Sauvignon at its best…and most archetypal. Maybe the best of Allan Scott’s string of top-rated recent vintages.

A bit more from the Wine Spectator:

Located at the northern end of the country’s South Island, the Marlborough region was built by accidental pioneers like Allan Scott. In 1973, Scott took a job planting the area’s first grapevines for Montana Wines, though there was no wine culture in New Zealand at the time and he was barely familiar with wine himself. Two years later, Scott and his wife, Catherine, purchased a block of land and started growing grapes for other wineries. He continued to help establish the region for other corporate brands until 1990, when the Scotts created one of the first independent wineries in Marlborough, focused on wines made from estate vineyards.

Not only is Scott one of the rare vintners who have worked every single grape harvest in Marlborough, but he has also remained a leader in the region, with a track record of terrific wines. At the center of his impressive portfolio is Sauvignon Blanc.
