Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2021 Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc - 93 points Wine Spectator

For the fourth vintage in a row, Allan Scott's brilliant Sauvignon Blanc has scored 90+ points with Wine Spectator. In fact, the 2021 vintage scored 93 points, making it one just five Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs to garner 93 points and sell for less than $20 in the history of Wine Spectator!

This has been a staff and customer favorite ever since we opened our doors over eleven years ago. It's always good, but I can assure you this is the best wine this iconic and pioneering estate has ever produced. I can also guarantee you it will be one of our best Southern Hemisphere Sauvignon Blanc deals of 2021.

It should come as no surprise that Allan Scott has produced one of New Zealand’s top Sauvignon Blancs of the vintage. He is an icon and has worked every harvest since 1973. He’s credited with planting some of Marlborough’s most famous vineyards, including the very first. And his intuition to plant his vineyards along the northern edge of the Wairau Valley has paid off. It is this area that is now home to New Zealand’s top Sauvignon Blanc vineyards.

A true family owned and operated winery, Allan and his wife Catherine established their estate in 1990 as one of the first independent wineries of Marlborough. Today, it remains family owned and operated. The Scotts remain involved in all levels of production; their son Josh is the winemaker; and their daughters Sara and Victoria are the viticulturist and marketing manager, respectively. Their vineyard practices are super clean, basically organic, and in 2006, the Scott Family Winery joined the Sustainable Winegrowers program and continues to follow its practices closely.

All of this hard work combined with the family’s excellent vineyards and Marlborough’s unique combination of cool nights, sunny days and rocky soils has added up to greatness in their 2021 Sauvignon Blanc. A modern classic, Wine Spectator did a great job of describing it and I have nothing to add. “Strikes a terrific balance between mouthwatering acidity, fresh herbal notes of lemon verbena and thyme, and core flavors of Key lime, Meyer lemon, pineapple and tangerine. Gains momentum on the finish, where the flavors sing in harmony and complexity.”

So there you go -- one of Wine Spectator's highest-rated Kiwi Sauvignon Blancs of the vintage, but certainly not one of the most expensive. I know it's a bit cooler out there these days, but I also know a lot of our Sauvignon Blanc lovers drink wines like this all year round. Thus, I expect this one to sell out rather fast.
