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 2017 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 2017 was cool, with above average rainfall through August. It dried up during Harvest. Sugars were high, and acids were crisp, with clean balance in the wines.
