d'Arenberg The Dry Dam Riesling 2018



Tasting this reminds me of an amazing Riesling tasting experience with Chester Osborn many years ago. Always out there for a challenge, he was out to prove McLaren Vale could produce Riesling and those wines could age. This release is not shy either and has the potential to reward the patient.

Some Adelaide Hills fruit is also used in this lively wine with some residual sugar prominent. Jasmine flowers, lemon zest and lime juice aromas early along with barley sugar. Quenching lime splice spills through the mouth with green apples and a citrus pith texture. Apple sours to close on a long finish with that phenolic grip kicking on. Cleansing acidity whips up the tail. Chill hard and enjoy on a hot summer's day.
