Left Foot Charley Dry Riesling 2012
Left Foot Charley Dry Riesling 2012 An amazing Riesling grown made from grapes grown in Michigan and produced in a winery that used to be an insane asylum. Bottle Price: $19.99 Read more
The winery has since grown to around 6000 cases and is located in the former Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane in Traverse City, Michigan. The urban environment has served to bring the terroir to the people. LFC is a Michigan version of an Austrian Heuriger - a place where aromatic and flavorful wine is an everyday event. This OMP vineyard is at the southern edge of Old Mission Peninsula. The plants are digging into very dense clay and gravel packed layers. The site is warm and tends to produce small clusters that struggle in the sparse conditions. The Antrim Vineyard is a silt dominant site. It sits on the Kalkaska shale and is going to be a significant site as it ages. The Leelanau sit is amid the Sleeping Bear Dunes and carries all the bright fresh acidity we expect from sandy soils.
