Dr. Konstantin Frank Rkatsiteli Finger Lakes United States New York Semi-Dry 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

This spicy white grape, pronounced ar-kat-si-TEL-lee, originated in the Mount Ararat on the border of Armenia and Turkey and dates back at least 5,000 years. Rkatsiteli starts out tasting something like a Riesling, but lingers longer on the palate, and has a spiciness reminiscent of, but different from, Gewürztraminer, evoking herbs, strawberries, and fresh ground pepper. Try it with salmon or grilled tuna. - Winery
