Winemaker's Notes

The 2012 Dry Riesling has a classic pale straw color with a crisp green hue. The nose shows typical Keuka Lake minerality and fresh lemon citrus fruit with an intriguing blossom aroma. The palate shows wonderful tight acid that balances out the fruity residual sugar enhancing the floral and lemon flavors. The palate also displays the slatey mineral characteristics that typify Dr. Frank's Rieslings. Serve with all seafood and crustaceans.

Energetic, harmonious and balanced, with savory, precise, lingering mineral flavors. Zesty acidity enhances lively floral and tangerine flavors of this wine.

This Riesling offers intense aromas of grapefruit and lime are accented by notes of citrus blossom, wet river rock, smoky gun flint and just a touch of botrytis. The palate is more peachy, but still shows bright citrus fruit — mostly grapefruit — and a minerally vein that runs from start to finish. Table 651
