2013 Ravines Finger Lakes Sparkling Riesling
We have long been fans of this New York Finger Lakes producer. Their Cabernet Franc is reminiscent of those from the Loire Valley and their still Riesling is full of wound nerve and beautiful aromatics, very much like those from Germany. I was very eager to taste this wine and it took one fizzy sip before I knew we needed to share this one. White peach, lime rind and fiercely zippy bubbles. Don’t go thinking because it is made from Riesling that it’s sweet, nothing could be further from the truth. This is a slightly pucker inducing sparkler with is exactly what you want at the start of any food focused event. Get those motors running! Super rare and fun bubbly.
