Additional information

Scott Base

The Scott family, owners of Allan Scott Family Winemakers, have long had an affinity with Central Otago. The Scott Base Vineyard was established in 1994 and is situated in the heart of Central Otago on terraces overlooking the town of Cromwell and Lake Dunstan.

Production

VITICULTURE
Scott Base is a terraced vineyard with sandy, silty, loam soil, and sustainably managed. The vines are spur pruned and the laterals removed to encourage the vine to concentrate onfruit production.
VINIFICATION
The Scott Base Pinot Noir is carefully picked and whole berry fermented. It spends 30 days on its skin to help extract
colour, tannins and fruit characters. After fermentation the wine ages for 8 months in French oak barriques before beinglightly racked and filtered ready for bottling.
