Local wine makes Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list

A Finger Lakes wine has been named to Wine Spectator magazine’s recently announced 2016 Top 100 List.

Ravines 2014 vintage Riesling Finger Lakes Dry, produced by Ravines Wine Cellars in Geneva, Ontario County, placed 70th with a wine score of 90.

The winery is owned by Lisa and Morten Hallgren.

Ravines Wine Cellars is the only local wine to make the annual list. Each year, the magazine editors survey the wines reviewed from around the world over the past 12 months and select the top 100 based on quality, value and availability.

Judges describe the Ravines Riesling as having a “taut, dry style, with pure lime, kiwifruit and pippin apple flavors backed by a slate note that gives the finish good tension and length. Very solid.”

The winery produced 5,475 cases of wine with a retail price of $18 a bottle, the magazine notes.

The full Top 100 list can be seen in the Dec. 31 issue set to hit newsstands Dec. 13. It also appears at http://top100.winespectator.com/lists.
