Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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. OwnerMorton Hallgren said this would "easily" last 20 years. He is probably right. Sourced from 34-year-old vines, there were 408 cases produced.

Ravines was created by Morten and Lisa Hallgren in 2000. Morten, a French-trained oenologist, came to the Finger Lakes from his family’s centuries-old estate in the South of France. He and his wife and business partner, Lisa, convinced of the potential for fine winemaking in the Finger Lakes, opened their original tasting room on 17 acres of sloped, shale stone soils nestled between two deep ravines on Keuka Lake.

They focus on making fine, classically-styled wines that allow for the cool-climate characteristics to be shown without compromise - creating their own unique expression within the Finger Lakes wine region.

As the most historic wine-producing region in New York state, winemaking in the Finger Lakes area dates back to the 1820s and today as a region, accounts for 90% of the state’s total wine production.

Its narrow and deep lakes created by the movement of Ice Age glaciers create an environment similar to the classic Riesling-loving regions of Europe, namely Germany and Austria. The Finger Lakes retain summer heat that incidentally warms up cold winter air, making it fall down from the lakes’ steep slopes. When spring comes, the lakes, already cooled by cold winter weather, stave off vine budding until the danger of frost has subsided. The main lakes of the zone, that is those big enough to moderate the climate in this way, are the focal points of prime vineyard areas. They include Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga.

While Riesling has fueled most of the region’s success, today Pinot noir and Cabernet Franc enjoy some attention.
