Quick Review: Dr Konstantin Frank Semi-dry Riesling

US, New York, Finger Lakes, Dr. Konstantin Frank, Semi-dry Riesling, 2010
+ // Sweet // Floral // Honey, caramel // Light

An interesting contrast to dry Riesling, at a subtle layer there were similar flavors to Dr Frank's dry Riesling (which you would expect from their being the same grape), but the major notes were so substantially different. This can be attributed to the terrior, or ground, the grapes where grown in, as well as the elements, vintage year, and production methods. A lot of various components come together to create the taste of a wine.
