"Top 100 Wineries" "Top 100 Wines" "Top 20 Wines, Best U.S. Riesling"
Bright flavors of lime, peach, flint, fennel and charred pineapple. A beautiful and succulent, dry riesling that shows terrific balance and tension from the integrated acidity. 90 points, Wine Spectator, rated June 2021
100% estate grown from our 16 Falls vineyard. A beautiful, secluded, sloping site with great afternoon sun exposure that sits next to the deepest waters of Seneca Lake. This 2nd straight single vineyard Dry Riesling is powerful, mineral driven and zippy. An age-worthy expression that melds lime, apricot and a floral bouquet.
The NY Times’ Eric Asimov described a previous vintage of this wine as the “Best American Riesling I’ve ever tasted.” An expressive and vibrant wine from the old vines and sloping limestone soils of the famous Argetsinger Vineyard on the southeastern edge of Seneca Lake. 92 Points - Wine Spectator, 91+ points - Wine Advocate, both rated in June, 2021
Large format 1500ml bottles are great for gatherings and also allow extended cellar aging. Written up as a wine to try in the New York Times in April of 2021 by wine columnist Eric Asimov!
"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."
After the success of the inaugural vintage, the Field Notes Blanc is back! A blend of Gewurztraminer, Valvin Muscat and Riesling, this fresh, crisp, summer white is juicy with lively acidity and a dry finish. The Gewurztraminer and Valvin Muscat provide an array of aromatics, while the riesling completes the fresh and lingering finish.
A dynamic chardonnay, bursting with baked apples, lemon zest and cloves. Restrained use of French oak, creamy textural components and a saline minerality provides lovely precision and balance along a lengthy, energetic finish. 92 points Decanter, 90 points Wine Advocate.
Succulent peach and lemon-peel cross with saline and sea-shell notes to frame this unoaked wine. Mineral-driven from limestone soils with juicy acidity, beautiful texture and balance. We purposefully bottle age this Chardonnay for multiple years after it spends lengthy time on the lees, as patience brings out nuances in this unique representation that will age gracefully for another decade or more.
Dynamic aromatics of asian pear, mango and sweet spices jump from the glass. Quintessential balance is paramount to the this wine's fresh and vibrant mouthfeel. The acidity is fully integrated for such a young wine, providing verve and staying power on the dry finish.
Lucious cherries, cranberries and delicate rose petals provide a beautiful bouquet of aromas. Soft tannins and nicely integrated acidity lead to a juicy and fresh finish.
New release for 2021 of Ravines flagship, estate grown, 100% Cabernet Franc. 57% from our 16 Falls Vineyard and 43% from our White Springs Vineyard aged for one year in 3 year old, 2000 liter Hungarian oak casks.
Medium bodied and juicy with crunchy red fruits. Hints of floral and mineral notes are backed by black cherries and baking spices. The long, bright finish is both refreshing and satisfying with the benchmark herbaceousness and dark berry punch.
