Generations ago, our ancestor Eli Scott, the first of our family to reach New Zealand, heeded the siren call of the 1860s-gold rush. Just like the elusive mother lode he sought, a wine as special as his is indeed an extraordinary find. We struck gold with these barrels and only 500 litres of this exclusive premium reserve will ever be bottled. The Generations single-vineyard range is made from the best grapes grown on the Scott family’s own estates. This exquisite vintage is the result of low-yield vines, meticulous viticulture and special attention in the cellar.
For the 2016 Chardonnay expect ripe melon and juicy pineapple characters on the nose. The sumptuous stone fruit melody is supported by toasty oak and a velvety butterscotch mouthfeel. The creamy caramel notes add for a warm finish and a touch of apparent sweetness. A perfect wine with lots of life and ability to store for 10 years plus.
