Drylands Dry Riesling 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose offers a perfumed bouquet of ripe citrus fruit characters, overlaid by floral aromas. On the palate, Drylands Riesling exhibits crisp, ripe flavours of grapefruit and lime with a honeysuckle complexity. The palate shows good weight and balance, lingering in a refreshing finish. A structure of elegant, lively acidity is offset by a hint of residual sugar.
