2012 Reserve Riesling, Lake Michigan Shore 750ml 3-Pack
Absolutely pure in flavor, harmonious and well-proportioned in its architecture, this Riesling seems crisp and light, yet packs intense flavors of super ripe peach, mango, lemon zest and mineral. Its vivid acidity jammed with fruit leaves a wonderful sensation on the palate creating a luscious, food-friendly style. Literally, like liquid fruit!
This is a bright, clean wine designed to be consumed shortly after release. There is no oak aging to weigh it down. All aging took place in chilled stainless steel tanks before bottling to preserve the fresh fruit character.
Vineyard Notes: Burgoyne Ridge Vineyard
With farming roots coming from Germany, the Nitz family started growing juice grapes in Southwest Michigan in the 1940's as a grower for Welch's and home winemakers. In 1971, the farm started planting wine grape varietals. Dan Nitz, the fourth generation grower in the family, currently manages over 250 acres of juice grapes and 260 acres of wine grapes while employing more than twenty employees year round. As the farm continues to focus on wine grape varietals, Dan Nitz's passion for grape growing is evident in our wines.
2012 Reserve Pinot Grigio, Lake Michigan Shore 750ml 3-Pack
Made in the Italian “grigio” style, this wine shows delicate aromas of mango, Bartlett pear and pineapple. These splendid aromas lead to a medium-bodied palate, with juicy Honeycrisp apples and tropical fruit flavors followed by a lush, rich body. Its style, harmony and amazing grace are balanced with its razor-sharp acidity.
