About the Wine
This terrific white Wine from Dr Konstantin Frank is produced in the Finger Lakes area of New York State. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark, you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Dr Konstantin Frank. Dr. Konstantin Frank Gewürztraminer, Finger Lakes is an interesting wine, made from Gewürztraminer grapes. This screwcap wine is now available to order via MC Live. Try with coconut-based curries and other spicy Asian dishes.
Gewürztraminer is a very distinctive aromatic variety. It's often full bodied, almost oily in texture with typical tasting notes of lychees and rose and can be spicy. Sometimes off-dry it can make a delightful wine match to Asian foods. However, high alcohol can be common and too much spice can clash.
Due to an extended, cooler growing season in 2019, grapes ripened with lower levels of sugar and a higher than average yield. The wines are full flavoured with fresh acidity and superb balance. The USA should not be overlooked for only producing full-bodied, powerful wines - there is so much more to discover beyond the stereotype.Explore USA
