Winemaker's Notes

Drylands Dry Riesling is a direct reflection of the terroir where the grapes are grown. The fruit for this wine is grown in dry, deep, fine alluvium soils in Marlborough's Golden Triangle that encourage a long, cool ripening period.

Appearance: Pale lemon in color, with brilliant clarity

Aroma: A bouquet of ripe citrus fruit characters accompanied by floral aromas

Flavor: Bright notes of grapefruit and lime are accented by touches of honeysuckle. The palate shows good weight and balance with a crisp lingering finish. A structure of elegant, lively acidity is offset by a hint of residual sugar.

Not my favorite dry NZ Riesling; a bit off. Fairly strong petrol notes for a youngish wine. However, the finish is tart and clean and shows that beautiful slate quality Riesling can have. Good with food (especially something clean like Sushi or salads), on it's own a bit too much.
