Tasting Notes

Dr. Konstantin Frank's classic dry style of Riesling made from vines dating back to 1958 from both their estate vineyard sites.

Delicate and elegant, harmonizing lime zest, granny smith apples, and mineral stoniness from the Keuka vineyards with fresh citrus and nectarine from the Seneca vineyards. The zingy freshness brings energy, brightness, and persistence.

Serving Suggestion

This Dry Riesling with elevated acidity pairs best with soft goat cheeses, simply prepared chicken or pork dishes sautéed or grilled, lightly prepared white fishes, salmon, or scallops, and greens salads.

Wine Enthusiast

90 Points || Delicately crafted from one of the Finger Lakes’s best-known producers, this opens with a lifted aromas of white peach, lemon-lime and florals with a honeyed underbelly. The palate is dry with a lofty line of laser-like, lemony acidity and a slightly chalky texture. Crying out for flavorful fish dishes like spicy fish tacos or Thai red curry.

James Suckling

91 Points || A lot of floral delicacy and lemon and lime zest, but also some good white-peach fruit behind those high notes. Good depth on the mid-palate for the challenging vintage, with some wet-stone character at the long, crisp finish. Made from fruit grown on Kueka Lake and Seneca Lake. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
