Craighall Riesling 1997

The transplantation of Riesling to Martinborough has been a success story at least the equal of Pinot noir in terms of quality of wines produced. The fruit was cropped to a relatively low level, and selectively hand-picked to produce a light gold wine with delicate aromas of lemon sorbet and touches of dry straw and honey. It has a fresh acidity, with penetrating flavours of limes, fresh apples and oranges, a touch of honey and a persistent, almost mouth-watering aftertaste. The palate veers to succulence and richness rather than the austerity of a completely dry Riesling style. It is attractive as a young wine, but has the poise and grace to age well and produce the complexity and interest that fine wine is all about. This is a robust cellaring wine and should be long-lived under reasonable cellaring conditions. View cellaring information >
