Dr. Konstantin Frank Grüner Veltliner 2016: $15 Very Good

The Dr. Konstantin Frank Grüner Veltliner (Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $15 [Very Good] is a fresh and quaffable wine loaded with lime and citrus flavors.  It is a refreshing sipper and a very nice value.

Pale lemon in color, the tart and lively aromas feature lime, lemongrass, grapefruit, hints of stone fruit, and white pepper.  Medium bodied, dry, with enlivening acidity, balance is very good.  Flavors of lime, lemongrass, grapefruit, white pepper, mineral and a touch of bitterness are fresh and well concentrated.  The finish is lively, lip smacking, with very good length.  July 2017
