Chateau Grand Traverse Riesling Semi Dry Riesling 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Honied lime and spicy herbal notes show up on the somewhat simple nose along with hints of apple butter and toffee. This is fairly sweet in the mouth with good acidity keeping it lively but the texture is a touch viscous and the flavors leans towards the treacly, dried fruit end of the spectrum with hints of dried figs, mango and a little strawberry notes that pops on the backend and drives through the modest finish. It’s good in its style, just be prepared for sweetness. 86pts

It started with one vineyard more than three decades ago. Now Chateau Grand Traverse has moved into its second generation of family winemaking – producing eighteen wine varieties from four vineyards sprawling across more than 120 acres, all earning countless medals to attest to the care and quality we put into every bottle.
