2013 Sparkling Riesling
Argetsinger Vineyard, Finger Lakes, NY
Ravines Wine Cellars
What we love
Crafted with fruit from what is arguably the finest Riesling vineyard in the U.S., this beautiful sparkling wine delights with mousse-like bubbles and notes of toasty brioche, citrus fruit, and a long finish. Fresh and thirst-quenching, perfect as an aperitif but also delicious with salads, seafood, and poultry.
About this Wine
One of the best wine producers in the Finger Lakes, Ravines makes this superb single-vineyard sparkling Riesling from the amazing Argetsinger Vineyard. Argetsinger is an old vineyard of limestone soils distinct from any other in the Finger Lakes. This sparkler is wonderfully fragrant and has a drying minerality characteristic that encourages sip after sip.
Developed, age-worthy, and an insanely good deal for this quality of the wine.
Awarded as a Wine Spectator “Top 100” wine.
Drink now through 2023.
- Technical Data
- Blend: 100% Riesling
- Alcohol: 12.5% | Production: 50 cases
- Winemaking: This wine was made in the same manner of Champagne (“Méthode Champenoise”), a centuries-old French method of Champagne making. It’s a labor-intensive process whereby wine undergoes a secondary fermentation inside the bottle to create bubbles. The wine was then aged on its lees for two years, a practice that adds complexity and richness to the best sparklers, before removing sediment by hand that results in a crystal-clear sparkling wine.
