Overview

Allan Scott is one of the true pioneers and a name synonymous with New Zealand’s acclaimed Marlborough region, having been involved with the planting of the region’s first vineyard in 1973. In June 2011 he was awarded with a Queens Birthday honour for services to the New Zealand wine industry. Allan along with wife Catherine founded the Allan Scott Family Winemakers label in 1990 and quickly became a household brand name in the highly competitive wine industry. Today Allan, Catherine and entire family of Victoria, Joshua and Sara head up the production marketing and management of the company with a highly skilled operational team. The family produces a range of aromatic wines especially well suited to the region’s gravelly soils and sunny climate; Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer while an exceptional Methode Traditionelle made with the traditional techniques and using only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is also produced.

Before I start I will say that this is not about my taste, as is the usual answer from this restaurant. The clams that i ordered were over cooked, rubbery and luke warm (either left lying about or reheated probably the latter). My wife's Tiger...More

Tasted three wines, one of them drawn from the stainless fermenting tank. The tasting was accompanied with a good explanation of disgorging champaign bottles.

Really enjoyed our visit to the Cellar Door. A young French woman managed our tasting and was very informative. Especially liked the Sauvignon Blanc. After we stayed for lunch in their restaurant. Very beautiful setting and the food was delicious.
