DR. KONSTANTIN FRANK DRY RIESLING, 2019

"...The Finger Lake Region near Lake Ontario in New York State is another excellent place to explore but its wines are tough to find - I have relied on American friends to bring me back bottles over the years. Recently, however, one importer has taken a risk and imported the Dr Konstantin Frank range - thank you, David Whelehan from Whelehans Wines. The Finger Lakes are remarkably similar in climate to some of Germany's great vineyards and the wines are comparable..."

"This might be a first for this column as this is the first Finger Lakes Riesling I've found in Ireland. Finger Lakes has a cool climate not unlike the Rheinhessen in Germany and this is delicious - bristling with apple and lime acidity, flinty and crisp and lingering baked apples and peach notes."
