For the last couple of evenings, I have been enjoying a Michigan wine. It is the Traverse Bay Winery’s Cherry Riesling wine, a blend of 25% Cherry wine and 75% Riesling.
Their website describes it as a “unique and flavorful wine was made from our Semidry Riesling Wine and Northern Michigan Cherry Wine. Simply put, this enchanting semidry wine displays crisp, fruity style with a delicate hint of cherry. We recommend serving this versatile wine slightly chilled as an accompaniment to picnic or barbecued fare, as well as cheese and fruit. This is a sweeter-style blush wine with crisp Riesling flavors and just a hint of fresh cherry.”
At only $9, it is a great mid-week sipper, offering something different than a typical Riesling with its light cherry flavor. While it is a bit late in the season for outdoor picnics, it is a nice, sweet wine that reminds me of summer. If only the summer would return!
Cheers to the impending return of the weekend! One more day!
