CIDER

2018 Hard Cider. Fruity, light, refreshing. Residual sugar <2%

WHITE WINES & ROSÉS

2020 Dry Riesling. Full body, generous flavor, refreshing finish

2020 Chardonnay: Unabashedly barreled in the Burgundian tradition.  Rich, creamy, and deliciously decadent!

2019 Riesling. Sweet & balanced, candied fruit & floral notes. Residual sugar 3%

2016 Vin Doux. Fortified dessert wine, notes of peach & honey. Residual sugar 5%

2019 Dosagé: Made in the méthode Champenoise from Traminette and Valvin Muscat, this sparkler exudes aromas of candied apple, fennel, and chamomile.  Crisp, dry and frothy, with only 0.5% residual sugar, this is a crowd pleaser for every occasion.

RED WINES

2018 Pinot Noir. Cherry upon cherry, with and firm tannin.

2020 Blaufränkisch. This red variety is most widely grown in Austria and Hungary, but it thrives here in southwest Michigan as well!  Fresh and fruit forward, with medium body and impeccable balance.

2019 Red Hawk Red. Cherry & strawberry notes with very light oak. Residual sugar 2.5%

2020 Merlot: From one of the best vineyard sites in the Lake Michigan Shore AVA comes this 100% Merlot.  Smooth and toasty, this is a heavy-hitting Michigan red that will cellar well for years to come.

2020 Cabernet Franc. Proving to be one of southwest Michigan’s flagship varieties.  Wild and herbal, with flavors of cherry candy and vanilla, this offering from the outstanding 2020 vintage is sure to please.  This is a structured, age worthy red wine that we are pleased to provide.
