Wine Feature: Dr. Konstantin Frank

Posted by on May 19, 2014

Disclosure: I received a bottle for review purposes during a Virtual Wine Tasting that concentrated on the Finger Lakes Wine Region.  All opinions are my own.


A few weeks ago I partook in an online virtual wine tasting that gave me a glimpse into the Finger Lakes Wine Region.  This region is well known for its Rieslings, Ice Wines and Gewurtztraminer wines, and this was my first time trying this region.

Needless to say, I was beyond excited, but what I was really looking forward to that evening was trying out a few Gewurtztraminer wines.  A varietal I’ve heard of, but hadn’t tried yet.

But, there was one true standout from all the wines I tried that evening and it came from Dr. Konstantin Frank Wine Cellars.  They definitely have been reward winning within the New York Wine Region since 1962.

Dr. Konstantin Frank really changed the course of the Finger Lakes Wine Region by introducing the “Vinifera Revolution.”  Because of his knowledge and determination to making really good wine, he has helped to put the New York wine region on the map.

And, it really stood out when I tried the Gewurtztraminer.  Sweet aromas of orange blossoms, citrus and banana making for a wonderful blend.  Since trying out this wine I have been courageous with trying out Gewurtztraminer varietals, however, this one from Dr. Konstantin Frank was the real winner, and has become a new favorite wine.

A Gewurtztraminer Wine is great to drink on a hot summer day, and blends well with turkey, pork, or rich Asian and Indian Foods.  Have you tried a Gewurtztraminer before?  What are your thoughts?
