Allan Scott 2016 and 2015 Estate Releases

As head of Allan Scott Family Winemakers, Allan Scott has a Marlborough wine history that stretches back four decades. Allan worked in the new Montana vineyards in the early 1970s and in 1980 joined Corbans to soon become their senior viticultural manager. Allan and his wife Cathy had by then purchased land and established vineyards to supply contract fruit. In 1990, they launched their own brand ‘Allan Scott Wines’, becoming one of the earliest independent winemakers. The company grown remarkably and has evolved to include the next generation of Scotts, eldest daughter Victoria responsible for marketing, son Josh as winemaker, and younger daughter Sara in viticulture. The ‘Estate’ wines are varietal and regionally representative and form the core of the business. Here, I review a selection of the latest and current releases, noting the Late Harvest Riesling 2014 as particularly decadent.
