The Dry Dam Riesling 2016

The Story Behind The Name

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, dry-grown, low-yielding vines.

The Characteristics

A classic Riesling nose shot with citrus notes, talc, sherbet and perfumed white flowers. The palate is trim thanks to the chiseled, dart-like acidity which partners harmoniously with the residual sweetness. This acid-sugar balance has been carefully shaped to ensure neither one nor the other takes authority. There is a resounding energy to the 2016 Dry Dam which bodes well for a long life to come. Drink early to enjoy the fragrant, delicate and lively nature of this wine or allow it to evolve into something more complex and toasty but equally fine and rewarding.
