Scout 2021 Central Otago Chardonnay (6 Bottles) Marlborough, NZ

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



Located on a lower terrace of the Lowburn subregion, this is a sunny site that gets a cooling effect from the prevailing northerly wind. Vines are an average of 15 years old and clone 548 is cane pruned on VSP trellising. The soils are a mixture of wind-blown clay and silts mixed and glacial schist deposits.

Fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed to tank and barrelled down the following day to a mix of barriques and puncheons (20% new). Wild fermentation is followed by full, wild malo.

About Scout Wines

Sarah Adamson, Winemaker at Scout Wines

Growing up in the Deep South of New Zealand, winemaking wasn’t even talked about when considering career options in my final years of school. Luckily, my parents had a great cellar and interest in wine which in turn sparked an enthusiasm

With a love for science and the outdoors I began to explore all options and found myself chatting to Invercargill’s only other Viticultural graduate. After a year of BSc and LLB, I left Canterbury University to pursue a career in winemaking. There was no turning back, and I have no regrets!

My favourite part of winemaking is blending. I love seeing all the parcels and batches come together to create what is going to be in the bottle.
