Scott Base is a wine brand under the Allan Scott Family Estate range of wines created to celebrate the Scott Base of polar origins and the adventurous spirit of Antarctic explorers who have forged brave trails in the vast frozen wilderness of this southern continent. The wines all hail from the Scott Base vineyards located in New Zealand’s Central Otago and include Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and a sparkling Méthode Traditionelle. The concept revolves around the ruggedness of the polar environment, with the brush stroke cross ‘marking the spot’ which also resembles the wind beaten flags often left as a fading memorial by explorers of old. The Scott Base Emperor Brut label introduces levels of detail with metallic gold inks, gold foil and clear varnishes producing a label that conveys a sense of history, tradition and luxury. The Emperor being the well known penguin variety that inhabits this inhospitable region. A stoic, hardy yet regal ocean bird that was an obvious choice as the theme for such a premier wine.
