After years of working in the wine business, Allan and Catherine Scott founded their eponymous winery in 1985 in Marlborough, New Zealand. Born in the area, Allan helped plant its first vineyard and has been one of the leading figures in the development of this region. His wife Catherine is one of a long line of farmers born and bred in Marlborough. The winery is located in the Rapaura sub-appellation, an area particularly renowned for its Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. A true family affair, Allan and Catherine remain actively involved in all levels of production, their son Josh is the winemaker and their daughters Sara and Victoria are the viticulturist and marketing manager respectively. The family's sustainably farmed vineyards are located along the northern edge of the Wairau Valley and are planted to gravelly soils. In 2010, their Millstone vineyard was certified organic.

Tasting notes
Gooseberries, hints of dried herbs and a touch of grapefruit precede notes of stone fruit. Bright acidity and balanced tannins are featured on the precise finish.

Technical notes
The grapes were cold settled for 24 hours. Using wild yeasts the wine went through a slow fermentation with a small percentage being fermented in neutral oak barrels with regular battonage.
