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.

The 2016 vintage favored vibrant, ripe lemon and lime flavors, with a touch of apricot. A pleasant background of minerality is enhanced with balanced acidity and moderate sweetness.

We paid careful attention to the ripening progress, and picked the grapes at the best time that would retain bright flavors and crispness
The growing season in 2016 was dry, with below average rainfall through August. Sugars were high, and acids were moderate, for a crisp, clean balance in the wines.
