2019 Dry River Craighall Riesling Martinborough – Dry River’s goal is to produce wines of optimal phenolic ripeness with ripe fruit flavours and modest alcohol levels that faithfully reflect the site and vintage.
The colour is pale straw with an apple flesh clarity. What stands out on the nose is a ripe fruit intensity. Upon the first smell tangible aromas clearly define this wine. Lemon flowers and lime sherbet are combined with less expected peach and nectarine notes. The extended lees aging in tank shows a light creamy or biscuit character, tying together the aromatics and bringing uniformity.
This can be a long-lived wine in the cellar, 10 years or more, and should be approached with care. When combined with food, think of cheese, and avoid high acidity in the dessert.
