Our John W. Simpson Sparkling Series honors the man who had the vision to start planting grapes and open Good Harbor Vineyards on the Leelanau Peninsula back in the late 1970s.
We opted to make this sparkling wine Demi-Sec in style so the finish has a hint of sweetness which is balanced by the natural acidity of sparkling wine. It is produced using the charmat method to ensure the bright stone fruit flavors often found in Riesling are preserved in the process and show through in the finished product.
NOSE: Classic white peach and a light essence of citrus rind is present in the aromatic composition of this sparkling wine.
PALATE: Lush fleshy peaches are abundant on the palate. Hanging around on the end is a wonderful flavor of candied pineapple. The sweetness of this demi-sec sparkling is balanced with the pleasing acidity that Riesling possesses
