It wasn’t just a passion for creating great wine that sent the Scott family searching for the perfect vineyard in Central Otago, it was also a longstanding love of the region.
With a climate and terrain unmatched for its rugged beauty and ability to produce excellent wines, it’s no wonder we have been enamoured with the Scott Base vineyard from the start.
Framed by the Pisa mountain range, with views of Lake Dunstan, Scott Base vineyard may only produce a limited vintage, but every bottle brims with the experience and enthusiasm that comes from many years of winemaking.
Carefully crafted to hero that distinctly Central Otago flavour, Scott Base is the classic “best kept secret”. In our Kiwi way, the Scott Family stands quietly proud of what a great wine it is. So here’s to good wine.
As one of New Zealand’s true Méthode Traditionnelle houses, we use exacting standards and time-honoured techniques to carefully craft the Scott Base Emperor Méthode Traditionnelle wine.
As summer quickly approaches, we’re excited to celebrate the launch of our latest offering, the Scott Base Emperor, and proudly share its impressive score of 93 Points from The Real Review. All of this comes with a touch of the distinctive Central Otago essence.
“Rich, flavoursome, creamy-textured fizz within a broad, mellow style. Toasted brioche, ginger and just a hint of green apple flavours with some citrus/lime characters. Quite a complex wine with a lingering finish”. Bob Campbell
