Ravines Dry Riesling 2017
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Dry Riesling is a blend of 16 Falls Vineyard on shale and White Springs Vineyard on limestone. It's dry (four grams of sugar, 8.2 of total acidity) and comes in at 12.6% alcohol. This is another example of how fine the Dry Riesling category is in the Finger Lakes. The prices are reasonable, the quality is high and the wines are available (there are more than 6,000 cases of this, out of the winery's 26,000 or so for 2017). Intense, focused and able to age, this is a classic expression of Riesling.
As it aired and warmed, it became a bit friendlier and more expressive, seeming more like the White Springs this issue. It didn't quite start out that way. Store this well and there will be no rush approaching it for more than a decade. It might do 20 years from the vintage date. I've said this a few times in this report, but this is certainly another time to trot this out given the quality, aging ability, price and availability: You may need to put your name on one of those cases. Drink date: 2019-2033." Jun 2019
Winery: "Juicy peach, kaffir lime and green apple with a distinct mineral streak. A Wine Spectator “Top 100 Wines in the World” three times in the past eight vintages, this wine has sleek acidity and a dry, lingering finish."
