Hedonistic and tightly focused, this exceptionally balanced wine displays lemon, lime and a seamless spine of natural acidity leading to a finish of extraordinary length.

A vibrant yellow with hints of gold and a faint green tinge to the hue.
The wine has a wonderfully lifted clean and fresh aroma. Lime and green apple marry harmoniously with orange marmalade, buttered toast and honey.
This wine shows the complexity of aged riesling while maintaining its youthful acidity. Lime marmalade, toast and honey can be used to describe the complex palate. Lively acidity ensures the wines elegant balance and longevity. The wine has a soft but refreshing finish and long persistance of flavour.
The 1998 St Andrews Riesling has had five years bottle maturation prior to release. As such this wine will drink superbly well upon release, but will age gracefully for a further 5-10 years with care.
