Ravines Dry Riesling Keuka Lake New York White 2011
Ravines was created by Morten and Lisa Hallgren in 2000. Morten, a French-trained oenologist came to the Finger Lakes from his family’s centuries-old estate in the South of France. He and his wife & business partner, Lisa, convinced of the potential for fine winemaking in the Finger Lakes, planted their original vineyards on 17 acres of sloped, shale stone soils nestled between two deep ravines on Keuka Lake. They focus on making fine, classically-styled wines that allow for the cool-climate characteristics to be shownwithout compromise -- creating their own unique expression within the Finger Lakes wine region.
Ravines Wine Cellars is a boutique winery on the hillside of glacier-carved Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. We produce fine, dry European-style wines: wines with character, balance and a sense of place.
Ripe pear and apple flavors with a crisp finish. Paired well with Thai food.
External Reviews for Ravines Dry Riesling Keuka Lake New York White
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 — 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.
