Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2019

2019 | Chardonnay
Ravines Wine Cellars
Geneva, NY, USA

Always an interesting wine due to Morten's use of appasimento style for 1/5 of the grape harvest.

Honeycomb, dried lemon peel, ripe pineapple core; pineapple puree, lemon zest, butter, oxidized yellow apple peel; long finish, round, complete.

East Coast (ish) vs West Coast Chardonnay

Cask Aged Dry Riesling 2019

This is the 2019 Chef & Winemaker Cask Aged Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes). My brother said he bought it from Ravines, so it has some connection to them obviously. Nose exhibits some new oak toast, but underneath is crisp, minerally Riesling fruit. On the palate there’s a similar progression: it’s full, with an initial whack of oak followed by lean, austere, minerally Riesling. Unique but I like its individuality. — a month ago

Argetsinger Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017

From my brother’s stash, such a beautiful Finger Lakes Riesling. More German GG than Alsace GC. Nose has bright apple fruit, with a fleeting note of almost ripe peach, green herbs, clover, and a minerality that reminds me a bit of Chablis because of a little brothy note. Perfect balance in the mouth: fruit, acids, minerality, alcohol. Lip-smacking long finish, and bone dry throughout. — a month ago

@Severn Goodwin Does the Finger Lakes area get Cabernet ripe enough Severn? I know it produces great Riesling.
