Very pale colour with green hues; the aroma has a hint of the classic Lothian Riesling characters but is most redolent of green mango, nectarines and lychees. The palate shows great length and finesse with a vibrancy of perfumed fruits such as guava and sweet peach, overlaid with a touch of white cherry, sorbet and clove. The balance of the wine is succulent and mouth-watering and invites a second glass.
The hand harvested fruit was crushed and cold soaked overnight with skin and stems. After a light pressing, it was cold fermented in a stainless steel tank using ambient yeast and a combination of varietal-specific commercial yeast strains. The Riesling was allowed extended lees contact to add textural depth and was bottled after light filtration to preserve the integrity of the wine.
