Dr. Konstantin Frank Gewurztraminer 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification The fruit was picked in the early morning to retain freshness. The must was left in contact with the skins for 24 hours for flavour extraction prior to fermentation at low temperatures. The ferment was stopped to retain a small amount of residual sugar. The Wine Description: Medium intensity with dominant characters of sweet citrus, stone fruits, cooking spices and floral notes. The time on skins and the yeast used add palate weight and texture, while enhancing the mineral undertones. The light touch of sweetness is well balanced by a crisp acidity.

The 2013 Gewurztraminer comes in at 13% alcohol and 6 grams per liter of residual sugar. It was primarily sourced from Seneca Lake. Consider this dry, perceptibly. The sugar here does nothing but balance acidity and (more importantly) prevent the wine from being overly bitter, as dry Gewurz can sometimes be. Classic in demeanor, this is laced with spice and lychee nuances. The mid-palate concentration is not overly impressive and the wine does fade and thin with time, but at the price point it is certainly adequate. Elegant and lively, it’s a charmer that should be hard to resist in the short-term. It will hold just fine for a few years, and perhaps longer that I suspect, but why wait? It will be at its best when young and fresh.

Demonstrating that they produce a wide range of high quality wines, the Dr. Frank Gewürztraminer has all of the class of a much more expensive Alsatian wine; depth, length, and great flavors all add up to a great glass of wine.

Perfumed with aromas of blossoms and ripe tropical fruits, this deeply concentrated Gewürztraminer is full of fresh, youthful effervescence. Bright tangerine acidity lifts the palate and extends on a medium-long finish.
