Region United States, New York, Finger Lakes
Brand Ravines
Alcohol/vol 12.6%
This focused, dry wine has floral components, exotic citrus, juicy orchard fruits and refreshing acidity. Extended skin contact gives it intensity and a strong growing season resulted in an expressive, ageable Riesling, culminating in a long finish.

The 2017 Dry Riesling is a blend of 16 Falls Vineyard on shale and White Springs Vineyard on limestone. It's dry (four grams of sugar, 8.2 of total acidity) and comes in at 12.6% alcohol. This is another example of how fine the Dry Riesling category is in the Finger Lakes. The prices are reasonable, the quality is high and the wines are available (there are more than 6,000 cases of this, out of the winery's 26,000 or so for 2017). Intense, focused and able to age, this is a classic expression of Riesling.

On the plump side for a Riesling, with pear, green apple and quince notes, backed by good zip on the finish. Drink now.
