Our classic dry style of Riesling made from vines dating back to 1958 from both our estate vineyard sites. This dry Riesling, presenting a green gold hue, displays the traditional qualities of Dr. Frank’s Riesling: crisp acidity, a pronounced mineral character and layers of mango, citrus and pear blossoms in the nose.  Descriptors include apple and pear with a full-bodied taste along with minerality resulting from the slate terroir of the vineyard.  The ripeness of the grapes resulted in a great texture with a lingering fruity finish. This wine has great ageing potential.

This cracking Riesling created by Dr Konstantin Frank is produced in the Pineapple area of New York State. 

Grown on the rich soils in steep vineyards to the west of the Keuka Lake, here cold air and excellent drainage allow Riesling to thrive. Picked in the morning to retain freshness and fermented with selected yeasts at low temperatures in stainless steel the grapes are fermented slowly to preserve its delicate floral aromatics.

Riesling was first brought to the Finger Lakes by our founder. Those original vines dating back to 1958 are still in production. Riesling blocks on our Keuka vineyard were planted in 1958, 1962, 1968, 1976, 1999, 2006, and 2012 with various clones (88, 90, 11, 318, 239, 49, 110, 38). Soils here are shallow, shale-based which add minerality, acidity, and elegance. Riesling was planted in 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2012 on our Seneca estate vineyard with 90 and 356 clones. Temperatures here are a few degrees warmer than Keuka thus providing riper fruit notes. Soils on Seneca are characterized by deep honeoye silt loam. A small portion of the grapes come from Eric Volz Vineyard, just north across the road from Dr. Konstantin Frank’s plantings on Keuka Lake. Riesling was planted in 1985.
