d’Arenberg The Dry Dam Riesling 2019

Okay, Chester Osborn has done it again. This time, the creation of an Augmented Reality Smart Phone app which now takes in the labels of the wines, not just accentuating the experience of his Lewis Carol/Salvador Dali world of The Cube.

Meanwhile, the Dry Dam Riesling is one of those sleeper wines. With a nod to Germanic off-dry styles it retains purity and lower alcohol percentages.

Lifted and bright perfume: apple skins, lime sorbet, wet sand and hints of musk. The acidity is tempered (only just) by the remaining sugars to present a finely textured, yet a little slippery wine with oodles of flavours. Good length, persistence and varietal citrus flavours ensure this isn’t lolly-water. A puckering, textural finish indicative of an age-worthy wine.
