Vineyard Notes: Herman Home Vineyard is located in Coloma, Michigan about 7 miles from Lake Michigan. It is perched atop rolling hills of Michigan sandy loam soils. Native orchard grasses can be found throughout the vineyard as a native cover crop. This vineyard is sustainably farmed.

Winemaking Notes: The Riesling grapes were destemmed and crushed into stainless steel jacketed tanks without the use of sulfur. The Riesling cold soaked for 24 hours to extract phenolics and aromatics from the skins. It was then pressed off gently and proceeded to ferment using native yeasts. Fermentation lasted 2 months and was stopped by chilling down the tank. This left some natural residual sugar. The Herman Home Riesling aged on its lees for 7 months to build midpalate and bring out different aromatics and flavors within the wine. It was gently cross flow filtered and bottled under screw cap to ensure long cellaring.

Tasting Notes: Light-to-medium body, white flowers, honey, Meyer lemon, spice

Pairing Suggestions: Indian curry, crisp duck salad, spiced Thai noodles
