In Australia, there's no need for wineries to label Riesling as dry. Consumers there wouldn't have it any other way. For U.S. sales they often label it as dry so it won't be confused with the sugar water many American wineries produce. This is simply a classic example of how well the world's best white wine grape performs Down Under. It's intensely flavorful and elegant, with hints of kiwi, lime, citrus peel and slate. The finish is crisp and racy. Great.
