Scott Base Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

29-Sep-2017
The ‘Scott Base’ label of Allan Scott Family Winemakers is their "little slice of heaven” for the Scotts, as they call their beautiful southerly site in Central Otago. The Scott family was involved in a partnership in the 1994-established vineyard on McNab Road on the outskirts of Cromwell, but took full ownership in 2008. The north-facing 6 ha vineyard is mainly planted to clones 777 and 667, with some clone 5 and 10/5, as well as a smaller amount of Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir wine is the focus of the property, with some very good Methode Traditionnelle produced from it too. The fruit is transported overnight from the vineyard to the Scott’s winery in Marlborough for vinification. Here, I review the new release 2016 Scott Base Pinot Noir. www.allanscott.comwww.scottbasevineyards.co.nz
