Allan Scott Eli Collection Pinot Noir
Generations ago, our ancestor Eli Scott, the first of our family to reach New Zealand, heeded the siren call of the 1860s gold rush. Just like the elusive mother lode he sought, a wine as special as his is indeed an extraordinary find. We struck gold with these barrels and only 500 litres of this exclusive premium reserve will ever be bottled. The Generations single-vineyard range is made from the best grapes grown on the Scott family’s own estates. This exquisite vintage is the result of low-yield vines, meticulous viticulture and special attention in the cellar.
You can expect beautiful boysenberry and cherry characters on the nose. The ripe and sumptuous concentrated fruit is supported by subtle notes of cedar oak and lightly roasted coffee. The soft, velvety tannins provide structure, resulting in a big, mouth-filling, long, and elegant finish. This is a perfect wine with lots of life and the ability to be stored for 10 years or more.
