Some very bright acidity laced with a slight sweetness that makes this a nice aperitif wine. Not too heavy so the balance is pretty good. Read more

It's a verifiable riesling! Big peachy aromas, with grass and some nuttiness. The body has nice acidic structure, with some gentle minerality on the finish. Nicely built and approachable.

Pale lemon color. Very mineral aromas, grapefruit and pear. Bone dry, high acidity, med alc, light body. Earthy flavors of hay and wet stone. Drink now (after decanting) or keep for 5-8 years

More than any other Riesling from the Finger Lakes, this one is why the region is becoming so competitive with Rieslings. It's consistently outstanding. Very crisp, very dry and clean. Their Chardonnay is unique also.

I love this Riesling and go to the Finger Lakes frequently just to get some more. It is crisp and clear with a fresh fruit forward taste but not the sour finish noted on some other dry Rieslings. Very reminiscent of some of Dr. Loosen's rieslings which I enjoy. This wine is great with oriental spicy foods.

Dr. Frank would be proud to know his tradition of producing German style Riesling's are still a favorite Domestic Riesling. They are crisp, lively and dry. A small burst of fruit forward is followed by the complimentary finish. A wonderful wine and one of the few from the Finger Lakes region I can buy in KY.

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.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
