Riesling Lothian Vineyards Vineyard Selection 2011 

Revered for centuries for its beguiling aromatics, famed longevity and indulgence when accompanied by cuisine in Germany and France, Riesling is rightly regarded as vinous nobility.

The maiden vintage abounds on the bouquet with a melange of green apple, pear, fig, star fruit, litchi, prickly pear, seductive spice and floral undertones cascading forth onto the palate and met with lively acidity, generous mouth feel, persistent fruit finish and undercurrents of minerality.  Deserving the patience of careful cellaring for a year or four, this Riesling will develop in complexity, however in its ebullient youth it will partner perfectly with yellow-tail sashimi, Canard à l’orange, and subtle flavoured Asian cuisine or as an aperitif.

Chardonnay Lothian Vineyards Vineyard Selection 2011 

The noblest of French white cultivars, revered for centuries and possessing the ability to create wines of profound elegance, longevity and terroir expression – these are the hallmarks of Chardonnay.

This cool-climate Chardonnay exudes honeydew melon, with hints of lemon, lime, undercurrents of ripe Elgin pears all enveloped by delicate oak, bolstered by a fine vein of acidity and minerality.  Deserving the patience of careful cellaring for up to a decade, this classic cool-climate wine will develop in complexity, however in its ebullient youth its richness will partner perfectly with lobster bouillabaisse, grilled duck breast with citrus compote, aromatic Asian cuisine, fresh West Coast oysters or as an aperitif.

Pinot Noir Lothian Vineyards Vineyard Selection 2011 

Regarded by many a wine-maker as the “heart-break grape”, due to the sheer difficulty in crafting a Pinot Noir of note, this cool-climate Burgundian varietal thrives in the unique micro-climate offered by Lothian Vineyards.

The ethereal burgundy coloured Pinot’s bouquet abounds with ripe strawberry, blood-orange, white pepper, nutmeg and floral notes.  The medium-bodied palate is a melange of sour black cherry, ripe strawberry, tobacco spice and undertones of weathered leather, which are all cloistered in fine oak, mineral and savoury undertones. This Pinot exhibits poise, elegance and complexity only achievable when the vines are in perfect balance.  Deserving the patience of careful cellaring for well in excess of a decade, this cool Elgin Pinot will develop in complexity, however in its ebullient youth it will partner perfectly with roast quail, duck and cherry pie, subtle flavoured Asian pork dishes, cured meats or a selection of artisanal fromage.

Special Late Harvest Viognier Lothian Vineyards Vineyard Selection 2011 

This maverick aromatic white varietal from the hot Rhône valley, with its ability to create wines with hedonistic bouquets and fulsome palates, is equally adapt at creating cool-climate wines of intensity and finesse at Lothian.  

The maiden vintage of vine-dried Viognier – each bunch’s stem was crushed by hand to ensure that the berries would desiccate on the vine to intensify the flavours, while maintain essential acidity, to create this unctuous golden elixir.  Deserving the patience of careful cellaring for the next decade, this unctuous vine-dried Viognier will develop in complexity; however its tempting sweet embrace will partner perfectly with smoked wild salmon, foie gras, slow cooked pork-belly or an accompaniment to a selection of fine fromage.

Fermented fact
: The first bottle of wine made in South Africa had to be scrapped after the man who tasted it reported seeing fluffy dragon offspring dancing on the tip of his nose; a clear indicator that the wine was a little too strong.
