A touch of diesel, white chocolate, earth, chalk, not fruit driven, a bit of dissolved co2 here, very acid driven wine, clean and crisp but with cutting acidity, easy flavors of apricot and pear, a bit lean and attenuated and the acidity conveys a really steely note, nice bit of kiwifruit, zesty kiwi and lime finish, very bright, good length, mouthwatering minerality at the end This really deserves some food and would work well with certain dishes, on it’s own it is challenging, but interesting 87pts

Ripe pear and apple flavors with a crisp finish. Paired well with Thai food.

I love this wine! Just the right amount of crisp apple, peach with a dry finish. Try it with my version of a Asia Dog. Mix 1/4 cup of each- julienne carrot, julienne seedless cucumber, kimchi, 1 finely chopped shallot. Top 6 all beef or pork hot dogs in the best buns you can find, garnish with light sprinkle of bonita flakes. A bit spicy but delicious!

Green apple nose. Very dry. Clean and light. A bit of acidity. Very easy drinking. Hint of oak on the finish.

Citrus in my nostrils. Like squeezing a grapefruit peel. Very sharp citrus mouth. Almost cankerous in the mouth.

A pale yellowish green in the glass, this riesling from the hot 2007 vintage offers lightly floral aromas along with those of dried apricots and fresh lime with a great minerally quality. The palate is lighter bodied and lithe, but still fills the mouth with intense minerality, bursting citrusy-lime flavors and an undercurrent of apricots. Several 2007 riesling I've tasted were flat and lifeless, but this one is anything but. The acidity is almost electric in its liveliness and the finish is lengthy, lingering with lime and slate notes. Morten only made 150 cases of this wine

Light fruity nose with bready and mineral notes. Lots of lime, minerals and medium-high acidity.

Historically, New York's Finger Lakes produced wines from native and hybrid grapes, but in the past decade, the region has undergone rapid growth and is focusing more on European vinifera varieties, predominantly Riesling. Ravines, founded by Morten Hallgren in 2000, made one of the best versions of the 2012 vintage, which had a warm, dry growing season. This wine includes grapes from the 16 Falls, Hobbit Hollow, White Springs and Argetsinger vineyards. 3,500 cases made.

Shows good weight and drive, with Asian pear, fennel and Fuji apple notes carried by lively acidity. Delivers lots of cut on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

Very lively, with deliciously crunchy kaffir lime, tarragon, green apple and melon rind notes that bounce through the juicy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2014.

One whiff reveals billowing scents of purple flower, fresh apple, lemon peel and sea salt. Bone dry yet penetrating with flavors of lime skin, green apple and fresh herbs, this is a lush, textural Riesling with outstanding complexity. It finishes steely and crisp andmdash; a perfect pairing with fatty hamachi or salmon sashimi.

Attractive toasted lees aromas recede after a moment of air, giving over to golden apple scents. The flavors are more lemony, mingling with the lees accents, lasting through a long, minerally finish. For all the ripeness in this stylish white, its lean austerity commands attention.
