Keuka Lake Vineyards 2017 Dry Vignoles
Long one of the top makers of dry Vignoles, Keuka Lake Vineyards and winemaker Staci Nugent have done it again with this 2017. The nose is redolent of pineapple, passionfruit and mango with just the most subtle honey/pollen note.
Those same honeyed tropical fruits take center stage on a brisk, balanced palate that hides the slightly higher ABV (13.7%) quite well. It's not overly complex, but it's fresh and refreshing.
