Dry River 2014 Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Riesling, and 2013 Pinot Noir

Dry River celebrates 30 years of wine releases this year. The company is certainly a different one in terms of people involved but the aims of hand-crafting fine, ageworthy wines that represent the terroir of Martinborough remain the same. I recently attended one of the 30 Year Celebration Dinners hosted by winemaker Wilco Lam at which founder Dr Neil McCallum also attended (click here to see my report). I believe that Neil is very pleased with the continuation of his work, and fully supportive of the forward outlook that Dry River has in approaching and working in the next three decades. The current Autumn Release wines represent the consistent style that has been achieved over the years, and they genuinely reflect the different growing seasons, as they should. With the favourable 2013 and 2014 vintages in bottle, Dry River have a good supply of top quality wine to further their 30 Year Celebrations. I had a good look at the Autumn Release wines in the middle of March (click here to see my report). I have now had the opportunity of tasting the wines under tighter and more controlled conditions for ‘Feature Reviews’. Here ae my reviews of these latest releases from this iconic producer. www.dryriver.co.nz
