Scotland's first homegrown wine declared 'undrinkable' by expertsScotlands first home-grown wine has reportedly be

en described as “undrinkable” b

y experts - but its grower insists decent Scottish wine is not far away. Christopher Trotter, from Aberdeen, hoped g

lobal warming would make his part of Fife hot enough to grow fine wine. However, he w

as disappointed to hear his first batch of “Chateau Largo”, grown on the slopes of the Upper Largo valley, was not the fine vintage he had hoped for. But he said he is convinced a few more years of soaring summer temper

atures will enable him to produce something better than cheap plonk. He told the Scotsman: Upper Largo vineyard has fallen short of expectations. “It’s not great,” he said. “We have produced a vintage of, shall we say, a certain quali

ty, but I’m confident the ne

xt will be much better. Weather: Mr Trotter hopes warmer weather in Scotland would make fine wine growing possible (file picture) “We have proved we can grow grapes i

n the Scottish climate.” He believes his mistake was not chilling the grapes quickly enough after they were picked, which allowed oxidisation to occur. For his next harvest, he is bei

ng encouraged to use dry ice to lock in the fruitiness of the grapes which should produce a better-quality taste. Richard Meadows, owner of Great Grog Company, an Edinburgh-based wine merchants, was among the first to sample Chateau Largo. He said: “It has potential. It doesn’t

smell fresh but

it’s crisp and light and structurally it’s fine. “It’s not yet drinkable but, that said, I enjoyed it in a bizarre, masochistic way.” The sherry-like concoction is also said to have “nutty notes” that might complement a “very strong cheese”. Mr Trotter, who trained at London’s Savoy

Hotel as a chef and h

otelier, was inspired to plant vines three years ago after a friend suggested global warming would give Fife the ideal climate for grapes in two decades. Studies have suggested that up to three-quarters of today’s major wine-growing regions will no longer enjoy optimal weather conditions by 2050 due to climate change. Scotland, however, is expected to enjoy warmer summers in the coming decades, raising hopes that good-quali

ty wines

could be produced. Last year, Mr Trott

er’s vines basked in near-tropical sunshine while more than 1,600 acres of French vineyards were hit by extreme weather conditions. Despite his initial setback, he remains upbeat, insisting he will produce a good quality table wine in a couple of years. He added this years vintage already looked promising as the pleasant spring weather meant the grapes were already growing well on the vines.
