Famous d’Arenberg, Famous Riesling…

A 95 Point Riesling that''ll only get better with age!

From Mr Halliday himself:

"An utterly impressive wine from a winery best known for its flotilla of red wines; its fruit has the juicy flavour and mouthfeel of the kind expected of a dry Mosel riesling; the intensity of the fruit is heightened by the crisp, crunchy acidity on the finish and aftertaste. The Dry Dam name is an anachronism."

- 95 Points.

The Bottom Line

  • From d'Arenberg - one of Australia's First Families of Wine
  • 95 Points – James Halliday

Nose
Jasmine and orange blossom, along with lemon and lime characters leap from the glass.
Palate
The sugar-acid balance from this fine vintage is impeccable. While both are present, they manage to meld together creating a mouth-watering yet supple sherbet character, which finishes dry and mineral, not cloying in the slightest. A pleasure to drink right now, this wine will evolve elegantly for many years to come.
Winery Information

In 1992 our neighbours built a dam that remained empty, as it was a dry winter. The next year it rained but the dam was jinxed and didn't hold water. A dry dam is bad news for our neighbouring farmers, but promises good results for our old, dry-grown, low-yielding vines.

"Too sweet for me"

Vintage: 2015

I love all the D'arenberg wines I have tried except this one. It has great flavour and smoothness but icey cold or near room temp still too sweet.

"Reliable D'arrys"

Always a reliable fallback wine. Clean, crisp and refreshing, and impossible to pass up at that price. Looking forward to tidying up the boxful.

"Prefer A Sweeter Riesling?"

Vintage: 2015

by
The Dry Dam Riesling is a well-made wine that many will relish - however, it contains more residual sugar than the tasting notes associated with it suggested to me. If you prefer a truly dry Riesling don't select this - if you like a little sweetness (always or even occasionally) this is a wine that could be savoured by you. My rating reflects my preference for much drier Rieslings

"D'Arenberg The Dry Dam Riesling 2015"

Vintage: 2015

by
I am a riesling snob. This riesling is just unctuous and beautiful.

Full of flavour, beautiful full palate, beautiful in the middle, lime and lemon & dry and beautiful long finish. My favourite at the moment. i will always buy this wine now. Seafood or asian or just on its own. Makes your mouth feel just right. You have to wait for the right price to come your way. I bought this for a steal.

"A Must Have!"

Vintage: 2015

by
This is a top shelf Riesling that is wonderful to enjoy on its own or as an accompaniment to thai or dishes with a hint of spice. Crisp on the pallet, we have been won over after a cellar door tasting that left us wanting more.
