Story

“The flagship Dry Riesling from Red newt, our goal is to make a dry Riesling suitable for everyday drinking that also has the interest and complexity to reward aging. A dry Riesling that is both savory and fruity, opulent and refreshing; everything we revere in dry Riesling from around the world. Intense and intriguing smoky notes on the nose evolve to grapefruit peel with time, both of which lead to a rich mid-palate that features exotic fruit while still being steely and dry through the finish.” More at Rednewt.com
