Ravines Wine Cellars Riesling Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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.

aromas of wet stones, minerals, as if you've dipped into a creek with hints of petrol. on the palate, the wine is lean with med+ acidity, citrus fruits, lemon lime

Lots of petrol with razor sharp acidity. This is definitely a food wine and went great with chicken pad see yu and thai curry chicken. I definitely get the kiwi flavors. this bottle was consumed rather quickly and was really a great complement to the meal.

Grainy mineral nose with a lot of tart acidity in the mouth. Enjoyable.
