Nobody has more experience growing grapes in Marlborough than Allan Scott. Allan planted some of the region's most famous vineyards, including the very first and has worked the land there every vintage since. Many of the vineyards he developed have gone on to win global recognition. In 1985, Allan bought land in the Rapaura district of Marlborough. This was to become the home of the family wine making venture.
Appealing ripe pear, peach, rose water and ginger spice aromas are evident on the nose. On the palate the wine is lush and full bodied with a moderate level of sweetness, balanced by gentle acidity and a touch of ginger spice on the finish.

Succulent vibrant nectarine introduces the wine, this then leads into a textured rock melon influenced mid palate and a ripe phenolic driven finish, this along with the natural acidity helps balances the wines off-dry style.
