DRY WHITE WINES

2019 PINOT GRIGIO

Tale Feathers Vineyard
– 20 BTL 8 GL
Club 63 – 16 BTL 

By fermenting the wine in stainless steel and avoiding long yeast contact we could keep the delicate aromas to reveal an apple-like freshness for a classic warm-weather sipper that really shows off in the glass.

2018 MURMUR

55% Pinot Gris, 21% Pinot Blanc, 13% Auxerrois, 11% Chardonnay
– 18 BTL 7 GL
Club 63 – 14.4 BTL 

Murmur is named for some of our voracious vineyard foes, the starlings. It is a blend of some of our favorite white grape varieties.

2018 LUTHIER

45% Chardonnay, 28% Pinot Gris, 25% Auxerrois, 2% Pinot Blanc
25 BTL 9 GL 
Club 63 – 20 BTL 

We like to play with fermentation in oak. In this case, we fermented and aged Chardonnay, Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc individually in used French oak barrels. The idea was to bring balance through the blend and the overtones presented by each barrel.

2018 KERNER

Jefferson Cup Invitational Double Gold Medal
– 20 BTL  8 GL –
Club 63 – 16 BTL

This is an extremely rare grape variety. The finished wine is dry and balanced with an intriguing floral aroma.

Jefferson Cup Invitational Silver Medal 
–28 BTL 10 GL –
Club 63 – 22.4 BTL

2018 OMP PINOT BLANC

18 BTL 8 GL

This grape loves our cool climate and sandy soils. It expresses powerful aromatics and intense fruity length while maintaining fresh acidity.

2019 DRY ROSÉ

DRY rED wINES

2019 BLAUFRÄNKISCH

–28 BTL 9 GL –
Club 63 – 22.4 BTL

Blau as in blue, Frank as in French, Isch as in …well…  ish. Like classic Blaufränkisch, this has concentrated dark berry juiciness coupled with black pepper.

IV Sparkling Pinot Blanc

Island View Vineyard
– 28 BTL  10 GL 
CLUB 63- 22.4 BTL 

Left Foot Charley’s take on Prosecco, this wine is a lightly carbonated, delicately balanced sparkling wine for all occasions from Island View Vineyard on Old Mission Peninsula.

2018 STUMBLE

72% Riesling, 28% Gewürztraminer
– 18 BTL  7 GL –
Club 63 – 14.4 BTL 

Melding Riesling and Gewürztraminer makes a wine that can be spicy and full of tropical fruit, but finishes clean and cool.

2018 MISSING SPIRE RIESLING

– 20 BTL 8 GL –
Club 63- 16 BTL 

With sweet wines, it is important to remember that they will age beautifully if fermented from excellent fruit. This is truly excellent fruit sourced from seven of our outstanding Riesling vineyards.

2019 LE CABAN RIESLING

– 20 BTL  8 GL
Club 63- 16 BTL 

We find this Riesling to be a melodic poem of delicate sweetness wrapped around an electric core of acid.

2019 LATE HARVEST RIESLING

Seventh Hill Farm
– 28 BTL  10 GL 
CLUB 63- 22.4 BTL 

A late harvest Riesling made from one of our most renowned vineyards.

Hard Ciders

OTTERSON APPLE

–12 BTL –

To start, Otterson is the name of a red-fleshed apple variety. We pressed these apples to create a small batch of dry rosé cider.

ENGLE’S RANSOM

–20 GROWLER TO-GO / 8 BTL / 6 GL –

Our first venture in cider made from Michigan grown European heritage apples, the Ransom has powerful aromatics and a longer mid-palate and finish.

GINGER LEE

–20 GROWLER TO-GO / 6 GL –

Fresh taste with a light ginger bite!  Made with dried ginger and ruby red grapefruit.

FORTIS MAELUM

–18 BTL / 8 GL 

The apples pressed for this dry British style cider are grown as part of an experimental block on the Engle Ridge Farm that was planted as part of our quest for true cider apples that will thrive in northern Michigan.

CINNAMON GIRL

–20 GROWLER TO-GO / 8 BTL / 6 GL–

This is a classic combination – apples and cinnamon. Whole cinnamon sticks added to the juice from OMP apples and steeped in the cider for 4-6 weeks.

 

By the Bottle

Available by the bottle in-house or to-go. The following wines are not available for flights or glass pours.

2017 GITALI

– 38 BTL  
Club 63 – 30.4 BTL

This Blanc de Blanc traditional method sparkling wine was slowly fermented in the bottle for two years, creating consistent, fine bubbles throughout the palate.

2017 DRY RIESLING

Michigan Wine Competition Gold Medal – June 2019 Wine Enthusiast 89 points
– 25 BTL  
Club 63 – 20 BTL

Aren’t all Rieslings sweet? Not even close! This completely dry Riesling has a balance of dried apple and peach flavors against spicy acid.

2018 PINOT GRIS

TALE FEATHERS VINEYARD
– 28 BTL  
CLUB 63 – 22.4 BTL 

This small bottling came from a selection of the 2.5 acre Tale Feathers Vineyard on Old Mission Peninsula. We chose to ferment and age the wine in two very old French oak puncheons.

2018 Chardonnay 

Eden Hill Vines
28 BTL   
Club 63 – 22.4 btl

The wine was fermented and aged in all second use French oak so there is a definite barrel contribution, but the fruit stands up to match. It has all the elegance and weight of a fine Chardonnay.

2019 Skin Fermented Pinot Gris

28 BTL   
Club 63 – 22.4 btl

We fermented this Pinot Gris with the skins as we would a red wine fermentation. Then, instead of pressing after a week or two, we let the wine age with the skins for 5 months.  Keep in mind that the skins of Gris are a raspberry color. The color is not very stable typically but when it has that long to bind with the tannins it creates a peculiar hue. The oxygen that inevitably creeps in further tints this and we end up with a beautiful orange colored wine.

2018 Blaufränkisch Reserve

– 45 BTL  –
CLUB 63- 36 BTL

A blend from our oldest and newest Blaufränkisch vineyards. The combination of black pepper, earth, and brambleberry flavor will evolve over the next several years.
