Lothian Pinot Noir 2017

Lothian Pinot Noir 2017

The wine has a medium colour intensity of Ruby red.
The nose is delicate and hints of dark cherries and musk sweets. There is a spice contribution from the wood of cinnamon and star anise. Savoury notes of the oregano, basil and bay leaf found in a bolognaise sauce round off the bouquet.

The first taste impression is of the silkiness and fineness of the tannins. All the elements of the bouquet persist. The balanced wooding, the gentle handling of the grapes during the ferment, shows in the quality of the tannin profile. It is fine-grained but lends a strength and presence to the wine not apparent from the entry.

2017 Lothian Chardonnay

2017 Lothian Chardonnay

The colour is very bright and clear with flashes of yellow and gold.

The nose is quite prominent and complex. It starts with notes of very ripe oranges, bananas and tangerine peel. These light fruit notes move to the heavier ones of a tarte tatin made with pineapples.

The entry is surprisingly bracing. The fine acidic backbone that gives this wine a lively tension asserts itself immediately. Flavours of yellow citrus, pineapple and nectarines come to the fore. Wood is noted but it is very much in the background. It provides a fragrant base and some texture to the mid palate. This wine has good length and all the while the flavours change in the mouth, the acid stands guard ensuring a very clean finish.

Lothian Riesling 2017

Lothian Riesling 2017

The wine’s appearance is clear, bright with a pale yellow gold colour.

The nose is subtle. It hints at pine needles, Cape gooseberry, wet fynbos, and has a light flintiness of river rocks struck a glancing blow.

The entry shows a taut acidity emphasised by the wine’s dryness. At first it is one of light yellow citrus, lemon and grapefruit but moves gradually to the crisp notes of a granny smith apple. The acidity, it’s depth and rhubarb-like tartness, gives the wine long length and helps maintain a tension right up to a very clean finish.

Hand picked and whole bunch press and only the cuvee was used for fermentation . Barrel fermentation and ageing for two months and then left on the lees for 18 months before engorging. Wine was then engorged with a typical french dosage and then left for three months in the bottle before releasing.

Lothian Horny Owl Shiraz 2016

Lothian Horny Owl Shiraz 2016

Horny Owl Shiraz entices the senses with its garnet red colour. The nose is clean, light and aromatic. The taster will pick up Honeyed liquorice and vanilla hiding amongst the Mocha Java nose. The taste is soft and fruity showing ripe picking. Along with the ripe flavours comes broad tannins to make this a more full-bodied but easy drinking wine. The combination of fruit, acid and ripe tannins make this wine a good accompaniment to more wine-challenging foods like curries and other spicy dishes.
An extremely long smooth finish.

Lothian Pinot Noir 2015

Lothian Pinot Noir 2015

Good bright ruby red colour, hints at a wine with good acid and pH. Colour shows a short gradation to a thin pale rim. Cooling nose.
Camphor and eucalypt on the nose moves quickly to hot cross buns, bread & butter pudding. On standing develops the complexity of angostura bitters and dark chocolate powder. Sweet entry, fruit noticeable but quickly transitions to a more savoury character. No harsh tannins. Drinkable now, but has all the elements in place to benefit from laying down for a year or two.
