Product Description

Perhaps the quintessential type of Michigan white wine is Riesling. The grapes grow particularly well in our cold climate, so giving a bottle as a gift is really representing a mainstay of our wine industry. This Black Star Farms Riesling represents so much that is great about northern Michigan. It is vibrantly alive, fresh, and highlighted with a balanced sweetness. There are aromas of fresh fruit followed by concentrated flavors of apples, apricots and peaches complemented by honey undertones. If you’re thinking of bringing it to your hosts at a holiday dinner, it is worth noting that it pairs well with pork, chicken, pear and blue cheese spinach salad, spicy cuisine, traditional German foods and Asian fusion.
