Exploring The World of Finger Lakes Riesling

Konstantin Frank was a driving force in the introduction of vinifera varieties to New York State and the first to plant Riesling in the Finger Lakes region. The Konstantin vineyards are among the oldest vinifera vineyards in the US. 

The Dr. Konstantin Frank uses specially selected German yeasts and undergoes
an extended low temperature fermentation. On the nose, there is a distinct wet stone minerality, with notes of lemon and lime, along with hints of peach. The palate offers crisp acidity, with notes of grapefruit pith, lemon and lime, along with apple, pear and peach. With 5 grams of residual sugar, this wine is technically dry, but retains a slight hint of sweetness on the finish. Another Riesling that can be paired with a broad range of foods but will also serve as an excellent aperitif.
