Dr. Frank 'Dry' Riesling 2012
Displays crisp acidity, a pronounced mineral character and layers of fruit aromas. Descriptors include honeysuckle, apple, pear, quince and a lot of minerality resulting from the slate terroir of the vineyard. The ripeness of the grapes resulted in a great texture with a lingering fruity aftertaste.
Dr. Konstantin Frank ignited the “Vinifera Revolution” a movement that forever changed the course of wine growing in the Finger Lakes and the United States. Dr. Frank’s vision, knowledge and determination are credited with elevating the New York wine industry from a state of happy mediocrity to a level that today commands world attention.
External Reviews for Dr. Frank 'Dry' Riesling
Hints of lemon with blossom aroma. The palate show wonderful acid that balances out the fruity residual sugar.
A nice, medium-bodied Riesling. Dr. Frank never seems to disappoint with this varietal; the nose is floral, with peaches, nectarines and apricots. There’s a nice balance here between the lemony acidity and the floral flavors. Notes of peach, nectarine and apple all hiding in the background. I’d drink this with seafood or a strong, sharp cheese.
Bristling with lime zest and a steely, mineral tone, this dry, moderate-bodied Riesling is elegant and refreshing from start to finish. It’s packed with white peach and apricot flavors, but zippy and bright with hints of fresh herbs that linger on the finish.
Round and fresh at once, there’s creaminess to this wine that’s interrupted by a burst of lemony energy. It has the edge for pork sausages.
Tasty kiwifruit, lime pulp, green plum and Granny Smith apple notes drive along in this version, with a fresh, slate-tinged finish. Drink now through 2014.
The nose shows good minerality and fresh lemon citrus fruit with an intriguing blossom aroma. On the palate, wonderfully tight acid that balances out the fruity residual sugar, enhancing the floral and lemon flavors. Pair with seafood, Asian dishes or asiago cheese. Food pairing: Asian, poultry, seafood, spicy foods Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light Finish: crisp
