Dr. Konstantin Frank Semi Dry Riesling 2006 Quick Sip

Dr. Frank Semi Dry RieslingThis is a semi dry Riesling from Dr. Konstantin Frank Vineyards($14.95) from the Finger Lake Region of New York.  I have had a dry Riesling a few weeks ago, so I decided to go for a semi dry one afternoon with some leftover Thai food.

In the glass, there was a mineral aroma; it reminded me of the smell of water pouring over steam rocks.  I was also getting some nice honey, melons, and citrus aroma.  It was not to sweet smelling, just right.

The taste was a nice lemon/lime, more toward the lime side.  It was clean and crisp, thanks to the acidity.  The honey was coming through not in flavor, but in feel.

The finish was nice in smooth.  There was a good balance between the residual sugar and the acidity.

My lunch of Curry Chicken and this Riesling was perfect.  This is a wonderful wine to have with a spicy dish.

This was a most enjoyable wine, the sugar was coming through a bit, and it was taking me a little while to get adjusted to.  However, by the end of this Friday afternoon, I was trying to squeeze the last drop from this wonderful Riesling.
