Appley, floral, pollen, honey. Syrupy and sweet but nice.

Peaches on the nose. Very effervescent with hints of peaches and citrus on the tongue. A bit sour on the finish. This is a really nice Riesling for people who don't like the sweet Rieslings, but still love the refreshing citrus notes.

Fantastic Off-Dry Riesling from Northern Michigan - The State of Riesling. 2008 on of the best vintages in that region for white varietals. This is arguably the best Riesling that Chateau Grand Traverse makes. One of Specialty Winemaker Sean O’Keefe’s pet projects, this medium straw colored wine was made from hand selected grape clusters pressed whole without destemming or crushing, which then underwent a very cool fermentation (42º F) to draw the process out. Off dry, at under 2% residual sugar, it offers rich, ripe green and red apple flavors and aromas underscored with a note of lime and a hint of mineral, all on a somewhat-more-than medium bodied frame, and shows excellent concentration, intensity and balance.
