The dry dam ain't dry, damn

Riesling 2011, The Dry Dam,  Fleurieu Peninsula, D'Arenberg

Australia white, $18.95, SAQ # 1115788

Drunk cold, it's great, but hides the slight imbalance. As it warms, the minerality shows, but the sugar seems to float on top of the wine. So you start sweet, finish sour. Perfect balance in riesling is tough - this one almost has it. Could have been just a touch leaner, but for the price, I'm being overly picky. Might just need time.
