Allan Scott Generations Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Marlborough, NZD $26

Oak-aged sauvignon blanc partially fermented with indigenous yeasts. Richer and more complex than the regular sauvignon, with more restrained fruit but greater overall flavour intensity. A mix of nutty yeast lees and ripe tropical fruit and tree fruit flavours with a suspicion of oak character. Good food wine. (Screwcap)

    It’s a great vineyard Allan Scott; both the wine and their restaurant. We would eat there a minimum of two times a year (for last eight years) and have never had a bad meal. Some of the meals have been stunners.

      Addendum. Not tried this vintage or label (love the label). Doubt it’ll be in the supermarket so will have to drop into cellar door next time through.
