Ravines Wine Cellars Riesling Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2010
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.
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!
External Reviews for Ravines Wine Cellars Riesling Finger Lakes Dry Riesling
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.
