2017 Riesling Icewine

Icewine harvest is always a game of cat and mouse, and the 2017 vintage proved no different. We watched several chilly windows go by as we approached the end of December, but it wasn`t until just two days before Christmas that the desired temperatures arrived and we were able to harvest those wonderfully sweet, frozen clusters.

A classically beautiful varietal for dessert wine, the 2017 Riesling icewine is bursting with aromas of white cherry, pear, nectarine, dried apricot, grilled pineapple and jasmine flower. The palate shows bright acidity to temper the high residual sweetness and create harmony.

Honeycomb and fresh peach and a wonderful almond marzipan tone mingle on the palate. Great length and complexity, this wine will age for a decade or more.
