This museum release has busted through its awkward adolescence and is entering a phase of optimal maturity. The lemon and lime sherbet notes of youth are gently retreating allowing the deliciously mature, toasty, flinty characters of aged Riesling to emerge.
Acid and sweetness continue to play a roll in equal measure, on the one hand countering each other, but at the same time ensuring generous mouthfeel with freshness and length. Sealed under screwcap and cellared in d'Arenberg's own pristine, climate controlled warehousing, every effort has been made to ensure this wine reaches your glass in the condition the winemaker would expect.
The name: 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. Small batches of grapes are gently crushed, chilled, and then basket pressed. The fermentation was long and cool, and was stopped before reaching total dryness to ensure that residual sugar remains to balance the high mineral acidity.
