Allan Scott Marlborough Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
This Marlborough producer has made a ripe blueberry- and cherry-scented 2010 pinot that carries plenty of allure. The palate's smoky cherry flavours run on fine, even tannins; gentle chew to close. Good balance here.

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
The 2009 vintage is ruby-hued, floral, fruity and supple. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, it was matured for 10 months in French oak puncheons (25 per cent new). Cherryish, plummy and slightly spicy, with some savoury complexity, it's a very enjoyable, drink-young

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The 2008 vintage is fresh, vibrantly fruity and supple, with good depth of berry and plum flavours, gently seasoned with spicy oak. Still very youthful, it's a finely textured wine, for drinking mid-2010+.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
The 2003 vintage is richer than the middleweight, moderately complex 2002 Grown in a single, company-owned vineyard (unlike its predecessor), the 2003 is a full-coloured, sweet-fruited and supple wine with fresh, ripe plum and raspberry flavours seasoned with toasty oak and good harmony.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The mouthfilling, supple 2001 vintage was matured in French oak barriques, new and old. Fresh plum/spice aromas lead into a weighty but green-edged wine with some savoury complexity and good flavour depth.

Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wines
Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Fresh and buoyant, the 1998 vintage is richly coloured and lightly oaked, with ripe raspberry, cherry and spice flavours and very gentle tannins. The 1999, French oak-aged for eight months, is like a rich Beaujolais, with deep ruby colour and a fresh, fragrant, raspberryish bouquet. It's a fruit-driven style with delicious berryish fruit characters and a smooth finish.

Fresh and buoyant, in a rather Beaujolais-like style, the 1998 vintage is richly coloured and lightly oaked, with ripe raspberry, cherry and spice flavours and very gentle tannins.
