Craighall Riesling 2008

This is bright and straw in colour – a more poetic member of our staff calls it “soft spun gold with hints of green”. It is delicately scented – citrus blossom, talc, white peach and with a palate which has flavours of pink grapefruit and its zest, plus an obvious minerality. Overall, the flavours are delicate but complete even at this early stage in its development. The palate is linear but not to the point of austerity, the texture is silky with a restrained richness and the aftertaste is long. The wine appears to have a big future, although whether it will live to the 10-20 years that some of these wines can achieve is yet to be determined.
