D'Arenberg The Dry Dam Riesling 2017

£12.60 inc VAT per bottle
JIC Rating 8/10
In 1992 our neighbours built a dam that remained empty, as it was a dry winter. The next year it rained but the dam was jinxed and didn't hold water. A dry dam is bad news for our neighbouring farmers, but promises good results for our old, dry-grown, low-yielding vines.
Jasmine and orange blossom, along with lemon and lime characters leap from the glass. The sugar-acid balance from this fine vintage is impeccable. While both are present, they manage to meld together creating a mouth-watering yet supple sherbet character, which finishes dry and mineral, not cloying in the slightest. A pleasure to drink right now, this wine will evolve elegantly for many years to come.
