Description

Considering 2020 was the Covid lockdown, which no one needs reminding of, luckily the harvest turned out exceptional, a silver lining to every cloud. A warmer season leading to an amazing autumn with cool nights produced perfectly ripened fruit with an acid purity like few other vintages. A year that will go down as legendary for more reasons than one, but most importantly for producing some of the best wines this century. And this Craighall Riesling being a prime example...

Smells

A heady rush of grilled lime, delicate white florals and mineral notes, with a trace of orange sherbet.

Tastes

Lovely limey grip on the entry, with electrifying acidity and green apple sorbet that refreshes the palate, the energy and vibrancy gives you a sense of the wine’s future. Clean, crisp and as pure as the driven snow, the palate is but of a preview of the Oscar-winning feature film this wine will become. Enjoy it from 2019 with Asian inspired cuisine but keep some on hand to watch it develop over the next 10-20 years.
