An elegant bottle of bubbles, inspired by the woman behind Allan Scott Family Winemakers, makes the perfect addition to a Mother’s Day lunch or sophisticated high tea this year.
Flavoursome and graceful, the Allan Scott Cecilia Brut NV carries the middle name of Catherine Cecilia Scott – wife of winemaking founder Allan Scott, and mother to children Josh, Victoria and Sara, all of whom work in the family business.
“Our mother is an avid bubbles fan, it’s her favourite drink,” explains daughter Victoria, the Director of Marketing for Allan Scott Family Winemakers.
“Dad decided early on that he should probably start making some bubbles or else she’d send him broke by drinking Champagne all the time – and so he created the Cecilia range, which includes a Vintage, a Rosé, and Mum’s favourite, the Brut NV.”
A carefully balanced blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes make the Allan Scott Cecilia Brut NV a sophisticated Methode Traditionnelle style wine perfect for a special occasion – whether it’s a long lunch, an afternoon antipasto platter, or an aperitif before dinner.
At the Scott family’s traditional Mother’s Day lunch in the Marlborough Sounds, it will be the drink of choice for guest of honour Catherine and her two daughters.
“We’ll be pairing it with some deliciously fresh Marlborough seafood caught that day, and toasting her for being a wonderful mum.”
A perfect match for seafood or creamy, decadent cheese, the Allan Scott Cecilia Brut NV is designed to add a silky sparkle to any moment, and embodies Catherine’s natural elegance and quiet achievement, says Victoria.
“There’s nothing better than popping a bottle of bubbles with Mum to say thank you, and to enjoy some quality time together as a family eating good food, drinking beautiful wine and sharing memories.”
