SMOKED, AGED RIESLING
This 9 year old Highland Islander was matured in refill barrel and is 59.4%
Flavour profile: Lightly peated
Outturn: 222 bottles
Panel's tasting note: "This nosed like an aged Riesling wine, off-dry with a balance of fruity, crunchy green apple, pears and citrus, and earthy mineral aromas with that typical hint of petrol in the background. Plenty of pure ocean salt and briny Greek olives on the palate neat but at the same time, sweet and fruity like a lemon pie, salted caramels and ‘smoked’ jelly beans. Water released a fruity peat smoke, more pears but also peaches poached in Riesling wine with tarragon and salted sour cream. The taste was now peat smoked grilled sardines in sweet and sour lemon pepper vinaigrette with Dijon mustard toasted bread."
Drinking tip: "Perfect match with smoked fish and/or salted cheese"
