Ravines White Springs Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017
|Region||United States, New York, Finger Lakes|
The 2017 Dry Riesling White Springs comes in with just four grams of sugar, 8.3 of total acidity and 12.5% alcohol. At least in perception, this seems fruitier and a little sweeter, relatively speaking, than the regular Dry Riesling, although the statistics are almost identical. Not quite as focused, but more voluptuous in perception and far more expressive of its fruit, this also has ample acidity underneath to support it while it ages. That was my initial impression, but I would add that, as they both aired and warmed, they came much closer together, the Dry Riesling opening up and seeming a little more like this. This, however, seemed just a touch better in its own style. I suspect this will age very well, but it also tastes great now.
Gentle-edged, with alluring jasmine, lemon and honeysuckle notes flowing through, while a core of creamed yellow apple flavors lingers nicely on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,000 cases made.
