    Default [TN} '07 Ch. Grand Traverse Dry Riesling

    With a light dinner tonight of bread, cheese and salad, I opened:

    2007 Chateau Grand Traverse Dry Riesling (12.5% ABV)
    nose: green apples, lemon, minerals
    palate: lightweight, firm acidity, bone dry

    A recent purchase on our last trip to Michigan, this year's edition
    proved to be a winner. Very dry and crisp, it was quite refreshing and
    reminded Jean of a Grüner Veltliner. Very good.

    Mark Lipton:

    Gruner Veltliner is semillon on steroids. Surprised and delighted to
    see it applied to Michigan riesling. I really need to visit there
    someday soon.

    At 13% (and more) yes.

    At 12.5% (and less) - which quite obviously is what Mark was
    talking about - definitely not.
