Eugenia Dry Riesling 2019

93pts
A single vineyard Riesling named after Eugenia Frank, Konstantin Frank's wife. From a single plot on our Keuka vineyards with old vines and highest shale content.

Pristine shale minerality hinted with lime zest and ripe peach fruit. A velvety texture with tart fruit that gives the wine briskness and drive lasting with a depth of flavor that is truly rewarding.

Pair with Swordfish (Lightly Grilled), Bratwurst, Pork Chops (Simply Prepared), Summer Fruits, Salmon (Raw, Poached), Scallops.

TASTING NOTES

Pristine shale minerality hinted with lime zest and ripe peach fruit. A velvety texture with tart fruit that gives the wine briskness and drive lasting with a depth of flavor that is truly rewarding.


VINEYARD NOTES

The grapes from this single vineyard come from our best Riesling plot and one of the oldest. This plot was planted in 1968 on 1613 and 3309 rootstocks. Soils on this plot have the highest slate content and are shallow with high natural acidity. This vineyard is managed by Eric Volz, current Vineyard Manager for the winery, who worked alongside his father Walter and grandfather, Dr. Konstantin Frank.


WINEMAKER NOTES

In 2019, budbreak and flowering started about two weeks later than normal. Temperatures during the summer were moderate, and much cooler than in 2018. August and September were cooler than average. Luckily, the weather in the fall was extremely favorable with extended periods of sunny and dry days followed by cool nights. This offered excellent conditions to fully ripen the grapes well into October.
