THE DRY DAM 2019 Riesling

Click Qty Box below for Price
  • In 1992 our neighbours built a dam that remained empty, as it was a dry winter. The next year it rained but the dam was jinxed and didn't hold water. A dry dam is bad news for our neighbouring farmers, but promises good results for our old, drygrown, low-yielding vines.

     

    This is an immediately drinkable Riesling. Granny Smith and Nashi pear to the fore. A spattering of lemon and lime and that ever present hallmark of sweet but tangy sherbet. The off dry sugar level adds a juiciness to the mid palate and the fine and well etched acidity, whilst supple throughout, provides a crispness and persistence on the finish. Fun and frivolous, but also quite stylish and refined. Suitable to be enjoyed chilled in youth, yet delivering a promise of something more evocative and complex with a few years careful cellaring.
