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. Pale lemon in color with brilliant clarity. A bouquet of ripe citrus fruit characters accompanied by floral aromas. 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
