Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright, vibrant red fruit character - ripe strawberry, Montmorency cherry, and a hint of cranberry. Fine grained tannins and a lengthy finish. This bottle makes a persuasive argument that Pinot (not Riesling!) is perhaps northern Michigan's premier wine grape.
Vineyard Notes
Cool spring. A warm summer was followed by early fall rains that necessitated picking early to avoid potential rot or disease set in the grape clusters. The fruit was sourced both from the 2 Lads farm and the Stone House vineyard; both lots were crushed and destemmed into our open top steel tanks for on-skin fermentation.
Production Notes
Fermentation lasted 21 days, after which the fruit was pressed and sent to barrel.
