Other East Coast Dr Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling Finger Lakes 2010
The 2010 Dry Riesling has a classic pale 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. This wine has great ageing potential.
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.
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.
External Reviews for Other East Coast Dr Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling Finger Lakes
While delicate on the nose with scents of orange blossoms and fresh apples, thereandrsquo;s a density on the palate of this dry Riesling that adds structure and style. Brisk with lemon-line acidity, its clean finish ends with a zesty lemon pith note.
Dry but juicy, with a crunchy feel to the pippin apple, lime and slate flavors. Thereandrsquo;s good zip through the finish. Drink now.
A lively, tangy style, with melon rind and white peach flavors backed by a slate note. Drink now through 2013.
Riesling does very well in the Finger Lakes, and this bottle is no exception. It boasts a beautiful nose of honey and peaches, followed by pear, lemon, and minerality on the palate. Fruit and acidity are in perfect balance, and the finish is silky-smooth.
Nearly as compelling as the semi-dry riesling, this wine also leads with golden peach scents. It follows with a cling-peach richness of flavor, backed up by a salty, savory tang. Therersquo;s just a touch of sourness in the aftertaste that may resolve with some time in the bottle. Cellar for nine months, then serve with choucroute.
Fresh cut apple and bracing lime and stony notes, with a flinty finish that might fan out a bit with short-term cellaring. Solid dry-style Riesling. Drink now through 2003.
