Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Riesling, Semi Dry (2017)

Viticulture
Grapes for our Semi-Dry Riesling majority come from vineyards on Seneca Lake where the warmer sites give us riper fruit aromas and flavors. 10% of the grapes come from our Keuka estate vineyards to add minerality and citrus. The 2017 vintage was cooler and slightly rainier compared to the hot and dry 2016 vintage rewarding us with grapes with more freshness, delicate aromatics, and bright acidity.

Vinification
The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pressed after 36-48 hours of skin contact for flavor extraction. Once pressed, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks, some on natural yeasts, at low temperatures to preserve the more delicate characteristics and freshness. We arrested the fermentation before dryness to leave a small amount residual sugar. The wine rests on its fine lees for 5 months before bottling.

The Wine
Clean and delicate on the nose with citrus, nectarine and pineapple with a touch of pear and mineral notes. The cool and balanced 2017 vintage gives this year’s wine brighter acidity and a slightly less sweeter style.
