Wine Review: Dr. Konstantin Frank has consistently released very good “Semi-Dry” Riesling and the 2016 offering is no different! This translucent golden straw-colored Riesling opens with an enticing mixed bouquet of pear, pineapple, light cantaloupe, vanilla and coconut. The welcoming palate on this medium bodied Finger Lakes Riesling is an initial burst of sweet honey crisp apple followed by fruity pineapple, kiwi and hints of honey. I enjoyed the balance and fresh acidity. The finish was mildly dry and the juicy finish faded away nicely. I would pair this Dr. Frank offering with seafood Mediterranean at Fishbones in Chelmsford. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: A nose of orange blossom, lavender and pear make this wine irresistible. The vibrant medium to full bodied mouth feel of this wine reveals flavors of apple, peach, mandarin oranges and leads into a zesty fruit finish. Drink now or cellar until 2020. Serve with orange chicken, paella, gumbo, turkey with cranberry sauce.
