In the Wairarapa in 1979 Dry River quickly established a reputation as one of the finest producers in the country producing Riesling, Chardonnay, GewÃ¼rztraminer, Viognier, Syrah and Pinot Noir. McCallum retired in 2011 and the winemaking duties have been taken over by Wilco Lam with Robet Willis and his team tending the vines. The vision of Neil McCallum is in good hands and Dry River continues to be one of New Zealand's most sought after wines.
BOB CAMPBELL MW - THE REAL REVIEW
Ripe, rich pinot gris with tree fruit, peach, nectarine, tropical fruit, pineapple and subtle spice and anise flavours. A hint of sweetness is balanced by fine, peppery tannins. A concentrated and appealing wine with cellaring potential.
