Dr. Frank, Can I call you Konstantin? How about, "Big K?" I want to congratulate you on producing such a fine, compelling white wine from an unheard-of Georgian (as in Eastern Europe) grape variety. Your Rkatsiteli is zesty, in the Jungwein/Vino Joven style. It's a mouthful of spritz, fresh peach & pear and a hint of greenness (in the running-across-an-alpine-meadow sense). Huzzah to you, sir.
Get it: Dr. Frank Rkatsiteli, 2006 ($25).
However, Doc, you've got some splainin' to do. When I hit your 'Wine Facts' page to have a gander of all the oeno-goodies you produce, I see something that is a mite bit disturbing. I see something called, "Chateau Frank Champagnes." Unless I've missed something (i.e. did you recently purchase a patch of vines in the Aube of Seine-et-Marne?), your "champagne" is produced in upstate NY from grapes grown near the Finger Lakes, no? Well then, please Kahuna Konstantin, drop the champagne moniker and use the less confusing label of, "New York Sparkling Wine." Hell, follow the Spanish (see: Cava) example and come up with a name for your bubbly. How about, "Frank's Fizz" or "Dom Konstantin"? Anything, just do away with bogarting the Champagne title. Merci!
