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 this 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.
Vintage 2019 / The Real Review – 95 Points
“Elegant, concentrated pinot noir with vanilla, spicy oak, cassis, blackcurrant and ripe plum flavours supported by a backbone of fine tannins. Can be appreciated now but will benefit from bottle age. Decant before serving for best results.” Bob Campbell
