It is not uncommon for me to walk around my garden and come across a plant or flower I had forgotten about. The only reason I remember it is because it finally shows itself after some sort of hiatus. Craigie Knowe riesling is that flower in everybody’s garden that has been forgotten about.
After tasting this wine, I’m sorry and embarrassed to say, I can not remember the last time I saw or was told about a Craigie Knowe Riesling. I hope it never happens again!
Okay so it has those lovely citrusy characters we’ve come to love about Tassie rieslings. Limes grapple over the top of lemons while a slight, almost cheeky, minerality adds to the freshness. A line of racy acidity that oysters would gravitate to (not that I eat them but I’m sure they would) providing length as well. You’ll be happy to know, this is not going anywhere for a while yet.
