Ravines Dry Riesling, Argetsinger Vineyard makes Wine Spectator's Top 100 List

Today Wine Spectator's prestigious Top 100 list was released for 2015 and Ravines 2012 Dry Riesling, a single vineyard Riesling from the amazing Argetsinger Vineyard, was on the list.  This is the third time in the past five years that a Ravines Dry Riesling has made the list.  Ravines Oenologist/Winemaker Morten Hallgren has always produced steely, mineral-laden Dry Rieslings since his first vintage in 2002.  "The top producers at the time focused on the sweeter, German style, but I wanted to express the pure mineral and fruit side."

Sam Argetsinger, who passed away almost a year ago, was an incredible person and a passionate grape grower. His vineyard is on a very special site.  His children own the vineyard now, with son, Beren, at the helm of management.

This wine is described by James Molesworth as having "taut, lip-smacking acidity [which] harnesses the core of Jonagold apple, heather, white peach and candied citrus peel notes in this ripe white, keeping this focused and energetic through the finish."
