Dr. Konstantin Frank Eugenia Dry Riesling 2020 / 750 ml.

Item#: 43486

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 9, 2022
This youthful dry riesling has a slew of floral and herbal nuances, together with delicate stone-fruit and wild-berry notes. So elegant, in spite of the full, juicy fruit on the palate. The long, wet-stone finish is racy and pristine. Made with grapes from the estate vineyard on Keuka Lake. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 12th May 2022
The 2020 Dry Riesling Eugenia comes in with three grams of residual sugar against 6.9 of total acidity and 12.9% alcohol. This is a single-vineyard selection from 1968 vines on soils with high slate content. The winery calls it their best Riesling plot. This is a surprisingly friendly wine this year, perhaps typical of the vintage. Maybe one day it will close down, but not today. It is splendid, showing off fine depth, a fruity demeanor and respectable power. As fruity as it is, it shows off a little tension on the finish too. This is very accessible this year, but it’s still likely to improve in the cellar. The winery is a strong proponent of the 2020 vintage (and they aren’t the only ones), but as impressive as this is, and granting that both are not here together, I’d take the 2019 just now. That may be slower-developing, but in a few years, a comparison will be intriguing. They are both very fine.

Where It's From

District / Finger Lakes

View more wines from Finger Lakes

Officially established in 1982, the Finger Lakes region has a storied history of wine production in New York State and is recognized the world over. The deep glacially formed lakes offer sublime growing conditions thanks to the sloping hillsides and moderating effect the lakes have on the temperature of the surrounding area.

The main growing regions are centered around Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake (which each have their own AVAs) but quality wine is being made throughout the region. Riesling is the belle of the ball in the Finger Lakes (oftentimes being compared to the Rieslings of Germany) but success has been had with Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and others.

Region / New York

Seeing as our store is located in the midst of New York's wine regions, we have a special affinity for New York wines. And so should you! New York is now producing some of the world's best Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, and there are lots of other terrific wines made from grapes like Catawba, Niagara, Cabernet Franc and others being produced here, as well. Every year, the quality, reputation, and demand for New York wines continue to soar. What are you waiting for? Uncork New York!

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

A beautifully made crowd-pleaser, which is as vibrant and light-footed as it is juicy and peachy. Super-fresh with tons of garden-herb character that makes it hard to believe this has 28 grams per liter of unfermented grape sweetness. Wild-fermented in stainless steel. Vegan. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Aromas of canned pear and apple are met with candied white grapefruit and fennel pollen on the nose. Apple and pineapple flavors are jolted up by a kick of tonic on the palate. This sweet Riesling ends brisk and clean on the quick finish. (Alexander Peartree)

WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 06/22
A spectacular value, this riesling has the concentration and elegance of wines three times the price. It leads with tree-fruit scents—pear, lime and lime leaf, apple—and carries a caramelly accent throughout. Its flavors are focused, concentrated, effortless, with a sweetness that one never notices, that rounds the wine, keeping it balanced and on point for a sumptuous meal, like a crown roast of pork.
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 9, 2022
A very juicy and citrusy off-dry riesling that has plenty of peach character on the well-structured palate. Striking oyster-shell character at the crisp and vibrant finish that leaps and bounds over the palate. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2022
Rounded aromas of yellow apple and white peach meet dried field flowers and sun-baked clay in this semidry Riesling that deftly balanced fruit and earth elements. The palate shows a pleasing textural creaminess that is further filled out by ripe apple and peach flavors, with plenty of fresh acidity to lend ample balance. (Alexander Peartree)

A nice fresh, crunchy style, which keeps the off-dry edge honest, this sports lime, fennel and pippin apple notes, with a honeysuckle-infused finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,472 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Lime, pippin apple and lychee notes give this a distinctive profile. It’s got good energy and freshness too, with a hint of sweetness on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,500 cases made. (James Molesworth)

The 2020 Newt Riesling is another of the winery’s new offerings this year, all sourced from Lahoma vineyard. It comes in with 53 grams of residual sugar, 7.7 of total acidity and 9.1% alcohol. This was in bottle a bit less than six weeks when tasted. It’s not a full-on dessert wine, but it won’t exactly be a normal table wine either. Particularly given the winery’s mostly drier style, this new brand seems well into sugar. That might be the key difference between this and the winery’s other entry-level Riesling, the familiar and semi-dry Circle Riesling that winemaker Kelby Russell calls more “everyday” in style. Like the Circle Riesling of late, this has a smoky nose — a somewhat disturbing trend — but the fruit and sugar here are pretty delicious. It has enough acidity to avoid being cloying, and did I mention that it tastes great? It retains its balance all the while. If you like them on the sweeter side, it is a success at a nice price. Hopefully, the smoky aromatics will improve a bit. It wasn’t the most severe episode of that I’ve seen. Give it some air on opening it. There were 1,520 cases produced.

Tasted blind, it’d be easy to mistake this Riesling for Muscat. Heady and perfumed, this wine indeed has musky, floral aromas of honeysuckle and jasmine, candied orange and lime granita. The off-dry palate is more tempered with a slight chalky grip but a mouthfilling texture and just enough acidity to support the sugar. Overall, it’s a balanced and highly crowd-pleasing style for sipping cold with a summery dessert like a fruit tart. (Christina Pickard)

Thanks to being on the lees for two and a half years, honeyed, brioche aromas mingle with high-toned apple, pear, ginger and jasmine flower. The autolytic characters add some yeasty complexity. There’s a lively lift of citrusy acidity, which, along with vigorous bubbles and a slippery texture, make this a highly classy, harmonious wine with all the facets of a delicious traditional method bubbly.

Give this some time in glass for the more reductive notes—like lamp oil and onion—to open and allow room for pithy lemon and flint aromas. A laser beam of lemon acidity nicely lifts the dry, slippery palate. This is a food-friendly bottling now, but it could also age with grace for seven to eight years. (Christina Pickard)

Here’s a ripe and juicy dry riesling for the cool 2021 vintage in Finger Lakes. Medium-bodied with a healthy structure but already polished, this has a long crisp finish, the white peach and pear fruit extending right to the back. Drink or hold. Screw cap. (Stuart Pigott)
