With its subtle lemony aromas and warm hints of gold, the Cecilia Brut is a special addition to any celebration and is also a loving nod to an exceptional member of the Scott family – Catherine Cecilia Scott – who, alongside husband Allan, planted the rst of the family-owned vineyards in Marlborough in 1975.
Made predominantly from Chardonnay, this silky sparkling is proudly made in true French Méthode Traditionnelle style on the Scott family estate. Wild strawberries and stonefruit avours abound. Its huge acid backbone is offset by the fresh fruit concentration. With bubbles that further enhance the aromas on the palate, the Cecilia Brut is perfect for those warm summer evenings and best enjoyed with good company (and generous antipasti platters, of course).
Son and head winemaker Josh Scott said the Cecilia Brut is often featured at the Scott family’s own celebrations and will forever hold a special pace in their hearts. “Like the wine, our mother is both vivacious and discerning, so it was only tting this special varietal was named after her – a legacy that will live on as the next generation of Scott’s start to make their mark on the family business.”
Josh tips the Cecilia Brut to be the drink of choice this summer, and the perfect accompaniment to Christmas Day and New Year celebrations. “Weddings, parties, balmy evenings at the beach or simply 5pm, there’s no occasion that isn’t right for a glass of sparkling. The Cecilia Brut pairs beautifully with a variety of seafood, meats and cheeses, as well as fruit based desserts, tarts and crumbles. As the French would say – délicieux!”
