Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Riesling from Dr. Frank is quite a bargain. It opens with a mild tangerine and floral like bouquet with a hint of light petroleum. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic, and displays a round mouth feel. The flavor profile is a tasty tangerine with hints of mild green apple and pear. The finish is dry and pleasant. This wine is food friendly and would be perfect with broiled scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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.
