We respect that every wine is a product of a thousand details, all of which need to be governed by the philosophy of reaching toward and developing an expression of place.

Vintage: 2005 10/16/2008

Michigan's renown for superior Riesling in dry, semi-dry and dessert styles must also begin to include sparkling wine. The yellow and green-edged hues of the 2005 Shady Lane Cellars Sparkling Riesling sets a taster up for aromas of green apple, pear and floral elements.Generous and well-mirrored aromas dance as bright and crisp-edged flavors on the palate. Just off-dry, this bubbly is not only competitively-priced for its high quality but a complement to Asian or Indian spicy foods.Produced by the Cuve Close method (also called Charmat or bulk process), the bead is remarkably tiny and the mousse is delicately frothy. Add a half inch of Peach Nectar to a champagne flute and top it off with this sparkling Riesling for a very fruity rendition of a Bellini.Shady Lane produced its first wine in 1992 but it was not until 2001 that a state-of-the-art winery was constructed. Brut-style sparkling wines have been part of the portfolio from the beginning but sparkling Riesling is relatively new. Pair it with crisp apple wedges and a soft, mild cheese like well-ripened Brie at room temperature for a no-fuss hors d'oeuvre.
