Named "Best White Vinifera" wine by the American Wine Society in 2016!
Our Dry Riesling has exotic tropical and citrus fruit flavors. Elegantly balanced with a hint of sweetness and by crisp acidity, finishing clean with just a hint of sweetness. Dry Riesling is one of our top wines in our portfolio. Glenora's Riesling grapes are harvested early in the season to capture their fresh fruit flavors. A long, cool fermentation is arrested just shy of bone dry leaving a dry wine balanced with pleasant, fruity, classic Finger Lakes Riesling characteristics.
