2019 Dr. Konstantin Frank Riseling Dry Margrit
2019 Dr. Konstantin Frank Riseling Dry Margrit Sourced from a vineyard on Seneca Lake, this 2019 wine offers a stony, earthy core surrounded by citrus and apple tones on the nose. The palate is broad and juicy yet dry in style, with honed lemon, pome fruit and crushed stone elements zipping along. Bright aromas of grapefruit, white flowers and pink peppercorn meld with a slightly grassy hop note on the nose. The palate is rounded in feel, showing a creamy melon flavor that’s honed by a lick of bitter spice.
