Wine Makers Comments:
In the better vintages there is a voluptuous depth of fruit flavor synchronized with continuously evolving aromatics.  These characteristics make this wine so good as an aperitif and unparalleled with an enormous cast of food.  It would be difficult to find any culinary creation that would not pair well with this Riesling.  At your next gathering around the table, try a glass of this fine white wine and see if you do not agree; there is not a better variety for the pure pleasure of drinking with food.
This wine has won an Elite Gold Award at 96 points!
Since Black Star Farms is very well-known, many grocery stores and wine shops carry their wine.  You may have to request this particular wine and if you can't get it in a store near you, you can order them online off of the winery's website.
My dad and my wife had this Riesling and both thoroughly enjoyed it, along with stating it paired very well with their dinners.  If you pick up a bottle of this wine, make sure to let me know what you think of this award-winning Riesling.  Riesling grows very well in Michigan and have been among some of the most top-rated wines from the state.  Why don't you try a very tasty white wine?
