Dr. Konstantin Frank dry Riesling, Finger Lakes

Dr. Konstantin Frank dry Riesling, Finger Lakes

The grapes for this dry Riesling were grown on the shale-rich soils in steeply-sloping vineyards to the west of the Keuka Lake. The site provides excellent drainage of both water and cold air and the Riesling thrives here. The fruit is picked in the early morning to retain freshness and then fermented with specially-selected German yeasts at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. A long, slow fermentation develops the wines delicate floral aromatics. Expressive with grapefruit, lime and tangy star fruit notes on the palate. The crisp acidity is enhanced by a distinctive minerality, often referred to as the Keuka Lake minerality.
