Allan Scott Generations Pinot Noir 2016, Marlborough, New Zealand

Allan Scott Generations Pinot Noir 2016, Marlborough, New Zealand: Cherries, black plums and a maple savoury character on the nose. The ripe and sumptuous concentrated fruit is supported by subtle notes of oak. The wine finishes very smoothly with refined ripe, light tannins providing structure and a smooth silky long flavourful finish.

Aroma: Fragrant aroma reminiscent of nettle, currant, sweet passion fruit and dried herbs with some underlying mineral notes.

Body & Taste: A full complex spectrum of flavours from herbal notes through to ripe tropical fruit salad, including tangy grapefruit, blackcurrant, passion fruit, capsicum and tomato leaf. Good fruit sweetness and soft texture are supported by firm but balanced acidity which refreshes and promotes a long, stony

Mineral finish.

Tekoko

Te Koko 2011 offers aromas of lemon citrus, bees wax and passion fruit flower. The palate is generous with layers of green mango, white pepper and flint; it’s richly textured but shaped by fresh acidity. Subtle tropical fruit and taught minerality linger on the plush finish. Te Koko is incredibly food friendly, complementing a range of cuisine. We particularly enjoy it with savoury dishes highlighted by fresh herbs or aromatic spice.
