This beautifully fragrant Pinot Noir shows ripe plum, cherry fruit, dried herbs and spice characters along with impressive weight and concentration. The Scott Base Pinot Noir is carefully picked and whole berry fermented. It spends 30 days on its skin to help extract colour, tannins and fruit characters. After fermentation the wine ages for 10 months in French oak barriques before being lightly racked and filtered ready for bottling. The Scott family, owners of Allan Scott Family Winemakers, have long had an affinity with Central Otago. The Scott Base Vineyard was established in 1994 and is situated in the heart of Central Otago on terraces overlooking the town of
Cromwell and Lake Dunstan. Ideal with p¬ât¬és and salami, this wine matches beautifully with beef and lamb dishes, and try also pairing with game.
Don√ït be afraid to serve with a dark chocolate mousse either. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years.
