Scout Pinot Noir x Pinot Gris (6 Bottles) Waipara, New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



Pinot Noir x Pinot Gris. Two varieties not often blended together, but have resulted in a bright, light, crunchy delicious red wine. Our ode to Beaujolais!

This wine is sourced from two vineyards in Central Otago. Organically grown and hand harvested. Components of this wine were allowed to undergo spontaneous carbonic maceration over 7-14 days. After this time, the grapes were foot stomped and finished ferment on skins. Once pressed, it was aged in old oak for 6 months before bottling in September.

Serve slightly chilled, this is the wine you want to be drinking this summer.

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.
