Dry River – Autumn 2011 Releases

28-Feb-2011
The common thread that has developed over the years and runs through all of the Dry River wines is their seamless and near unctuous textures, whether white or red. This is attributed in no small way to increasing vine age and full maturity, and the Dry River wines must be a showcase for quality from this often-discussed but rarely displayed or understood factor in the making of the world's great wines. The 2010 growing season was a cool and slow one, but with managed yields, ripening caught up; the white wines in particular have benefitted with greater aromatic profile. 2009 is turning out to be a Pinot Noir vintage to rival 2008 in enjoyment. www.dryriver.co.nz
