Langley Late Harvest
Spencer Stegenga, proprietor and wine-grower, dedicated this vineyard to his beloved grandfather, Harold Langley, in 1998. Our Langley Vineyard boasts over 3,500 Riesling vines grown in optimal clay and gravel soil. Facing the western shore of Lake Michigan's Bowers Harbor, these vines ripen in the warm sunlight throughout our long summer days. The grapes are hand-harvested late in the fall maximizing the intense golden fruit flavors, rich mouth feel, and sweet finish
Planted in 1991, our Block II Vineyard is our oldest and most recognized Riesling Block. In this special part of our property, we planted some of the highest quality Riesling clones from Germany. Year after year, the Riesling grapes from Block II continue to exceed our expectations by producing globally recognized, award-winning wine. This dry wine emanates lychee and anise aromas, followed by bright apple flavors with a thread of floral spice, and finishes clean.
The morning mists in the Smokey Hollow Vineyard roll back as early morning sunshine warms the vines and ripens our Riesling grapes. Formerly home to dark, sweet cherry trees, this clay and gravel soil now succors heavy clusters of this classic, cool-climate grape. Exceptional growing conditions yield fruit with notes of crisp citrus and hints of pure minerals.
