Dr. Konstantin Frank Riesling Semi-Dry 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Located on Keuka lake in the Finger Lakes region, Dr. Konstantin Frank Wines features some of the oldest vinifera vines in the United States and continues to produce wines of distinction and quality. Vinification The fruit was picked in the early morning to retain freshness and fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was stopped before dryness to preserve the fruity character of this wine. The Wine Description: Medium intensity with dominant characters of sweet citrus, peach and floral notes. The light sweetness is well balanced by a zesty acidity. A versatile refreshing wine to enjoy on its own or with a wide range of foods.

The 2013 Semi-Dry Riesling (hyphenated on the back, not on the front) comes in at 28 grams per liter of residual sugar and 12% alcohol. It was primarily sourced from the winery’s Seneca Lake Vineyards. Not quite as interesting as its dry sibling this issue, this still shows very well, fresh, fruity, moderately sweet and very elegant, with some focus on the tasty finish. Drink it now or hold it for a few years. It should do well either way.

Plump and ripe, this semi-dry riesling has a spiced apple scent and pineapple flavors that last with sweetness. A big white for something spicy, like Numb-Taste Wonton from LA’s Chengdu Taste.

Tasty, with good focus. A refreshing fennel hint leads the way, backed by ginger, jasmine and yellow apple notes. Lively acidity. Drink now. 3,300 cases made.

It’s always a joy to discover a wine as enjoyable as this is priced so reasonably. Plump white peach and yellow cherry flavors are plush and pure, but braced by an exhilarating stream of lime and lemon zest. Deftly structured, and nuanced by hints of dust and mineral, this is a widely accessible yet deeply satisfying Riesling.

A complex bouquet of orange blossom, lavender and pear reveals a vibrant acidity that champions zesty apple, peach and mandarin flavors that are tailored for light spicy foods or a fruit dessert.
