Chili, chocolate and hop flavoured wines will be available in off-licence stores in February, thanks to a Marlborough wine company. Allan Scott Family Winemakers have been making craft wines, inspired by the experimentation of craft beer, since March last year. The first of these, the Green Hopped Gooseberry Bomb Sauvignon Blanc, combines Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grapes with green Sauvin hops from Nelson, while other varieties have added chili, coffee and chocolate.
