/ Dry Riesling

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.

Tasting Notes 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.
