Dr. Konstantin Frank 2017 Sauvignon Blanc
I've been very hard on Finger Lakes sauvignon blanc over the years, but this example from Dr. Konstantin Frank proves that the grape does have a place in the region. A punch of passionfruit and grapefruit greets the nose with hints of tropical fruit and grassy, almost hoppy, green edge.
Plump and juicy, the medium-bodied palate features a similar combination of passionfruit, citrus and tropical fruit with that hoppy edge. Fresh acidity balances just a hint of residual sugar beautifully.
