Vivid apple, pear, and orange peel aromatics compliment honey and petrol notes. Ageable due to its strong backbone of acidity. Polished.
Gold medal winner, 2018 Michigan Wine Competition.
2016 boasted a hot growing season in Northern Michigan. A cold, wet fall and harvest introduced a small quantity of Botrytis rot which attributes a delicious honey character to this wine.
The Riesling was treated fairly gently as it had a fair amount of botrytis (10%). The fermentation was long and lingering not fully complete until well into January. Fermentation stopped at 0.9 for dry balance.
Rieslings offers high acidity and strongly reflect terroir. Northern Michigan Rieslings reflect the minerality of their glacial erratic soils. These wines become more concentrated and complex with age.
