Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling 2007

Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars on Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York is Mecca for lovers of dry Riesling. I was introduced to dry Riesling about three years ago. Prior to that all the Rieslings I had were very sweet and my taste had changed to somewhat drier wine. My first taste of dry Riesling was an eye-opener. So much can be done with the Riesling grape: dry wines, semi-dry, semi-sweet or sweet. Just choose your favorite. Dr. Frank's Dry Riesling has received perhaps the most awards of Finger Lakes wine and has received a 93 rating by Wine Spectator. Not too shabby! As a special feature of our recent tasting we wanted to bust out this very special wine and, as always, it was a great hit. The wine has a crisp, minerally taste with a layers of mango, citrus and pear. This is another great value at just $14.99.
