Wine Review: This white gold colored Riesling opens with a fragrant pear bouquet with hints apple, light lemon, and honey. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with hints of green apple, pilsner beer, and white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this wine with chicken lo-mein. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 Dry Riesling has a classic 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 shellfish.
