'Craighall' Riesling 2011

Riesling is the the most delicate of the varieties that we harvest so it was fortunate that it could be taken in before the weather changed. This is a light straw coloured wine with ripe aromas which include crushed Kaffir lime leaves, fresh fig and soft spices. On the palate it appears firm and big in extract – almost weighty for a dry Riesling. The flavours are fresh rather than crisp and have a clean, lingering aftertaste. They form an interesting mixture including limes, citrus zest and nutmeg and the wine is likely to take some time to unfold. For me this is the variety which does particularly well with white fleshed fish, chicken and Japanese cuisine.
