Description

Dry River Riesling, dry style, is about chasing purity, transparency and tension between acidity, sugar, and texture. They chase a long fermentation for added mouthfeel, but in stainless steel tanks to maintain the fresh and crisp characters. One of NZ’s top Riesling producers, well top producer full stop. Every wine they produce is about class. 2021 has proved to be another top year for this exceptional Martinborough producer.

Smells

A heady rush of grilled lime, delicate white florals, and mineral notes, with a trace of orange sherbet and even crushed basil and fennel.

Tastes

Lovely limey grip on the entry, with electrifying acidity and green apple sorbet that refreshes the palate, the energy and vibrancy give a sense of the wine’s future. Clean, crisp, and as pure as the driven snow, the palate is but a preview of the Oscar-winning feature film this wine will become. Enjoy it from 2022 with Asian inspired cuisine but keep some on hand to watch it develop over the next 10-20 years.
