Dry River's Martinborough location aptly describes their very arid, gravely and free-draining site. The first wines - chardonnay, gewürztraminer and pinot gris were bottled in 1984.
Dry River has since developed a reputation as one of New Zealand’s most iconic pioneering wineries. The wines are largely sold by mail order and are not widely available through the retail trade. We are lucky enough to be able to present some for sale to you.
A dry, elegant riesling from a small block of old vines in the Craighall Vineyard.
Rigorous hand harvesting in multiple passes has brought a wine of supreme quality and potential. A beautiful lift and freshness run through this delicately ripe wine, with tropical notes wrapped around bright citrus and minerals.
Drink soon or cellar a good while, this wine is superb as usual from Dry River.
