Finger Lakes Wines Judged High in National Competition

Here is news from Jim Trezise of the New York Wine and Grape Foundation:
Some of Dr. Frank's wines

Dr. Konstantin Frank (Keuka Lake) 2012 Dry Riesling was awarded Best of Show (of all wines), and Sparkling Pointe (Long Island) 2003 Brut Seduction was Best of Show Sparkling Wine at the recent U.S. National Wine Competition sponsored by Vineyard & Winery Management magazine.

On its way to the ultimate prize, the Dr. Frank Riesling also took Best of Show White, meaning that New York wines topped two of the five major categories (White and Sparkling).

Sparkling Pointe also won a Gold for its Brut, and Chateau Frank won a Gold and Best of Class for its 2007 Blanc de Noirs along with a Gold medal for its Celebre.

Other awards included Gold medals for Anyela's Vineyards (Skaneateles Lake) 2010 Noiret; Coyote Moon (North Country) 2011 River Time (also Best of Class), and 2011 Brianna; Goose Watch (Cayuga Lake) 2011 Viognier; Swedish Hill (Cayuga Lake) Vidal Blanc and Spumante Blush (both of which also won Best of Class honors).
