Large format 1500ml bottles are great for gatherings and also allow extended cellar aging. Dry Riesling produced from a single vineyard, the Argetsinger Vineyard on Seneca Lake, one of the oldest Riesling vineyards in the Finger Lakes. The Argetsinger Vineyard's limestone soils produce a grape of lean minerality and complex floral aromatics.
"The Finger Lakes is the best source for riesling in the United States. Of all the Finger Lakes rieslings I know and like, I can’t think of a better one than the Ravines Argetsinger Vineyard cuvée. This is not the only riesling made by the husband-and-wife team of Morten and Lisa Hallgren. Their basic dry riesling, at $18 or so, is a great deal. But the limestone slope of the Argetsinger Vineyard, on the southeastern shore of Seneca Lake, produces grapes with extra length, depth and resonance. If you can find a bottle, treat yourself."
