Winery: Ravines Wine Cellars
Wine Type: Riesling
Wine Category: White Wines
Dry Riesling produced from a single vineyard, the Argetsinger Vineyard on Seneca Lake, one of the oldest Riesling vineyards in the Finger Lakes. The Argetsinger Vineyard’s limestone soils produce a grape of lean minerality and complex floral aromatics.
Ravines Argetsinger Vineyard Riesling aims to define a new style of Finger Lakes Riesling distinct from its German and Alsatian counterparts. It is intensely aromatic with floral notes, citrus fruit, and a distinct mineral character. The steep limestone of the Argetsinger Vineyard provides a unique expression of minerality. With good acidity, this wine is very crisp and elegant and will age gracefully. On the palate, it shows unusual richness, medium body, and a lingering smooth finish.
This Riesling is an exceptionally versatile wine when it comes to food pairings, with the crispness and aromatic intensity, it can be paired with seafood dishes, poultry, and milder cheeses.
