Ravines Wine Cellars White Blend Finger Lakes Keuka Village 2007

Member Review by aronowm2:

Believe it or not, this wine is the best pairing for pickles I have ever had. There is a distinct sodium element on the palate which fades away to gorgeous supple fruit when paired with pickles. Must be tried to be believed. This is why i love wine/food pairings because you discover the most random flavor combinations.

it's a cross between Schuyler and Seyval Blanc--two hybrids--so not technically a native grape, but, it was developed at Cornell University's New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York (that's in the Finger Lakes) specifically to succeed in the sometimes-challenging growing conditions there. It is a hardy variety with some bunch-rot disease resistance, but can easily result in foxy, grapy flavors if not picked early enough. Clearly the grapes that went into this wine were picked before those flavors developed, because this is the first Cayuga-dominated wine I've tasted that I've actually enjoyed...and would buy and drink again. It's not a wine to contemplate, but it's absolutely balanced, fresh and delicious.
