Tasting Notes

Ravines Dry Riesling is a unique and elegant expression of the Finger Lakes terroir. Delicate yet complex on with  white flowers mingled with pear, apple and citrus notes followed by a lingering mineral finish and a vibrant acidity.

 
Ravines Wine Cellars is owned and run by Morten Hallgren and his wife, Lisa.  They purchased a winery and vineyards on the north west side of Seneca Lake in 2012 and they also have a tasting room on the east side of Keuka Lake.  Along with their estate grapes, they purchase grapes from the east side of Seneca Lake for this, their flagship Riesling.  A long, cool fermentation is followed by extended ageing on the fine lees and gentle fermentation.
 
 
Morten, originally from Denmark, comes from a wine family.  He grew up in Provence at a wine-growing estate called Domaine de Castel Roubine.  He attended enology and viticulture school in Montpellier, France and upon moving to the Finger Lakes worked at Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars before starting his own project in 2000.
