Nobody has more experience growing grapes in Marlborough than Allan Scott. Allan planted some of the region's most famous vineyards, including the very first and has worked the land there every vintage since. Many of the vineyards he developed have gone on to win global recognition. In 1985, Allan bought land in the Rapaura district of Marlborough. This was to become the home of the family wine making venture.
This beautiful Pinot Gris delivers delicate aromas of pear and nectarine which flow through to honeyed floral and citrus notes on the palate. A textural and elegant structure provide length to the finish.
Ahhh, excellent choice. This is a classic Pinot Gris with aromas of ripe red apple and blossom, topped off with lime and pear on the palate. Does that make it a fruit salad? You be the judge of that...
Appealing ripe pear, peach, rose water and ginger spice aromas are evident on the nose. On the palate the wine is lush and full bodied with a moderate level of sweetness, balanced by gentle acidity and a touch of ginger spice on the finish.
Inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and sourced from Rockburn's Central Otago vineyards, the Devil's Staircase Pinot Gris takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights.
