With chilly wind and rainy skies settling in, there’s no better time to plan some cosy nights in with family and friends to enjoy a mouth-watering home-cooked meal, and share a delicious bottle of wine.
Rug up and relax no matter what the occasion with a bottle of Allan Scott Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013, the perfect accompaniment to a hearty dinner or long lunch this cold season.
Intense aromatics of ripe red fruits, strong raspberry and cassis are supported by a well-integrated oak scent, while the delicious ripe strawberry flavours on the palate are accompanied by a touch of cherry and hint of dried herbs to make this wine an all-round winter warmer.
Concentrated and powerful, the Allan Scott Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013 will be a match made in heaven with your favourite winter meals such as a succulent roast beef or lamb, a slow-cooked game stew, or a decadent chocolate or fruit dessert.
One of the most popular varietals in New Zealand thanks to its versatility and broad flavour appeal, Pinot Noir is sure to please any guest, and the team at Allan Scott have ensured their Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013 is distinctive and delightful.
Allan Scott Winemaker Matthew Elrick says the elegant layered aromas and palate-pleasing flavours are the result of years of refinement and dedication to producing the very best bottles of this drinkable and delectable wine.
“A cool climate grape, Pinot Noir is particularly suited to the Marlborough region, and we produce this wine from our Pinot Noir vineyard which was established in 1995,” says Elrick.
“The aging of our vines, and the greater understanding we gain as growers with every season, has enabled us to further develop our Pinot Noir style each year and this vintage is no exception.”
