The world famous Dry River are one of the pioneers of the New Zealand wine scene and quite rightly sit at the big boys table of New Zealand fine wine names.

Named after a historic sheep station a few kilometres down the road, Dry River was established in 1979 by visionaries Doctor Neil and Dawn McCallum. These guys were well ahead of the game when they planted their first vines on what is now known as the Martinborough Terraces. It’s a site known for its free draining gravels, cool maritime climate and (thanks to a bit of inside info from soil scientist and friend Dr Derek Milne) a 30 year record for the lowest rainfall in the North Island.

In 2003, Neil sold the winery to a seriously wealthy Wall Street billionaire hedge fund manager and philanthropist Julian Robertson (according to Neil, ‘the guy who invented the hedge fund’ and one of the world’s super rich!). The aim remains the same though – to produce world class wines that age beautifully.

We’re super stoked to be able to land some extremely limited stocks of their 2022 Dry River Lovat Vineyard Gewurztraminer. Scoring 95/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell places this extremely good Gewurz among NZ’s finest.

Bob said “This wine defines restrained lusciousness. An initial burst of sweetness is followed by tangy acidity to give a lengthy, medium-dry finish. Exotic Turkish Delight flavours gradually build and eventually dominate an array of less exotic flavours such as pot-pourri, mango and lychee. One of a handful of truly great examples of New Zealand gewürztraminer.”

This is one of NZ’s best, Gewurztraminer as it’s meant to be! All bottles individually numbered, drink now to 2032.
