Wine Review: This white gold colored dry Riesling from the Finger Lakes opens with a wet stone and faint pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, viscous, acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of lime and pear. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite some time after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with a chicken and baked brie sandwich with fig spread and spinach. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker 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.
