Rkatsiteli is the most widely grown grape in Georgia, but this wine is from the Finger Lakes.  The late Dr. Frank planted the varietal there in the 1960's.  This one is excellent and a nice change of pace. Silvery gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with lemons, quince, slight ginger and white pepper.  Medium bodied.  Slightly oily texture.  On the palate, nice lemon fruit with some white pepper.  Clean.  Long finish.  This is drinking well now but this wine will age and evolve over the next ten to twelve years.  It drinks great on its own and will work well with lighter foods.  A nice wine with Quiche.
