Tasting Notes
“Argetsinger possesses some of the oldest vinifera vines in the Finger Lakes, with the Riesling dating back to 1985. 2015 seems to be another incredible vintage for this wine. It displays aromas of lime skin, snow pack, white flowers, and flint. On the palate it is mineral-laden and pure, with a remarkable intensity for such a lean build. A bright and vibrant acidity leads to a long and stony finish.” 94 points, Vinous Media; Kelli White, 7/30/16
Ratings
“The 2015 Dry Riesling "Argetsinger Vineyard" has just three grams of sugar versus 8.1 of total acidity. It comes in at 12.6% alcohol. The driest and most austere of the Rieslings, this has those stony and metallic nuances of a sterner wine. This, unlike its siblings, is strictly a food wine. It broods a little too much to be a porch-sipper. That said, it is beautifully constructed and capable of aging well. Owner Morton Hallgren said this would "easily" last 20 years. He is probably right. Sourced from 34-year-old vines, there were 408 cases produced.” 90 points, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate; Mark Squires, 6/28/19
