Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling 2011
The 2011 Dry Riesling has a classic straw color with a crisp green hue. The nose shows typical Keuka Lake minerality with fresh lemon citrus and apple with an intriguing blossom aroma. The palate shows wonderful tight acid that balances out the fruity residual sugar enhancing the floral and bringing out the bright tangerine flavors. The palate also displays the slatey mineral characteristics that typify Dr. Frank’s Rieslings. Serve with all fin fish and shell fish.

External Reviews for Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling
Dry but juicy, with a crunchy feel to the pippin apple, lime and slate flavors. Thereandrsquo;s good zip through the finish. Drink now.
Shades of smoke, dried herbs and nut skins add savory tones to this dry Riesling. The palate builds intensity on the midpalate with layers of fresh apple, lime skin and underripe stone fruit, bolstered by sprightly tangerine-laced acidity.

This dry Riesling, presenting a green gold hue, displays the traditional qualities of Dr. Frank's Riesling: crisp acidity, a pronounced mineral character and layers of mango, citrus and pear blossoms in the nose. Descriptors include apple and pear with a full-bodied taste along with minerality resulting from the slate terroir of the vineyard. The ripeness of the grapes resulted in a great texture with a lingering fruity finish. This wine has great ageing potential. - Winery
