New Zealand’s Allan Scott Family Wine takes top spot in the Wine Spectator’s Wine Value of the Year

The prestigious USA wine publication, Wine Spectator, has revealed its inaugural Top 10 World Wine Values of 2021, with New Zealand’s Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2021 taking one of the top honours.

Spotlighting the best-priced wines of the year, the list features bottles that are rated 90 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s 100-point scale that cost £20 or less and are made in large-enough quantities to be widely available.

“Great wine doesn’t have to be expensive,” says Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher of Wine Spectator. In celebration of those wines that overdeliver on quality for the price, we’ve selected our Top 10 Wine Values of 2021. While making these selections, we kept in mind the diversity of the global wine scene, looking for wines with solid track records that are good representatives of their regions.”

Josh Scott, the Allan Scott Family winemaker commented “With every vintage we strive towards creating the purest, most memorable, and best possible wine out of what nature has gifted us in New Zealand in the form of soil, sun, water and wind. It often morphs into a subtle art, with personal techniques, secrets, newest and at times most forgotten ways of making wine.” He continues “Wine scores and reviews are important to us as they provide a clear indication of whether we are on the right track, and there is also the added benefit of letting you make the best choice possible by having an independent expert opinion.”

RDM Wine Agencies Sales director Bastien Martinole said “A 93 Point score and Value Award for this wine in its purest, freshest, un-cellared form is the remarkable story of Marlborough wine and the very personal story of the Scott Family Winemakers. It is a story that involved a good deal of perseverance and like-mindedness, as well as some extraordinary ingenuity that revolutionised local winemaking. A huge congratulations to all the team at Allan Scott Family Winemakers.”
