Three and a half glasses
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.
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.
Four and a half glasses
I can tell it is a quality wine, but it's not my favorite.
External Reviews for Dr. Konstantin Frank Riesling Finger Lakes Dry
Bright and crunchy, with a mix of green and yellow apple fruit mingling with honeysuckle and lemon pulp notes. Offers a refreshing, energetic finish. Drink now.
Zesty lemons and limes are perfumed with whiffs of orange blossom on this brisk, revitalizing dry Riesling. Tart tangerine acidity penetrates deeply on the palate, leading a finish that’s crisp and clean.
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

Best of Show-- Pacific Rim International, 2013
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.
