100% Riesling | Leelanau Peninsula | Semi-Dry | 1850 Cases
The estate grown Semi-Dry Riesling is the flagship of Shady Lane Cellars. Our sandy, gravel soils hold heat, readily drain and contribute to this intensely aromatic wine. The vines are maintained throughout the season for balance and sunlight penetration to the fruiting zone which increases terpene development.
This wine is composed of four different clones and comes from several different estate blocks. It was fermented in small batches using different yeasts to increase complexity. The 2013 vintage imparts flavors of lime zest, honey, wildflowers and peach. Fermented and aged in stainless steel this wine shows some sweetness up front but finishes bright, clean and crisp.
