Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lemon, apple, orange blossom compliment a slight petrol note and crisp acidity. Portrays a more youthful acidity and slightly less sweet than our 2016 vintage. Yet still delicious.
Vineyard Notes
Spring 2017 had a slow start but a warm October made up for a slow spring, ripening the fruit to perfection. The grapes endured heavy yellow jacket pressure but avoided significant damage.
Production Notes
Standard tank fermentation stopping at 0.7 residual sugar balancing 7g/L of acid.
Winemaker Notes
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.
Food Pairing Notes
Spicy foods, Asian-inspired dishes, lobster, scallops, fish, creamy dishes, fruit dishes, and most all cheeses.
