The 2019 Riesling Icewine was harvested at -12 degrees Celsius and pressed the same morning. We hand harvested to protect the integrity of the fruit and whole cluster pressed a long and slow cycle to gently extract as much concentration of flavours possible. The 2019 Riesling Icewine was cold settled after pressing and then racked into stainless steel for a long, slow fermentation at cool temperatures, to enhance aromatics and preserve fruitiness. Our Icewine was then transferred to a 5 year old French oak barrel for further aging for 12 month. The wine was then racked, protein and cold stabilized and filtered before bottling.
Gold with an amber hue.
A very perfumed and concentrated wine with dried fruits and tropical fruits that fill the glass. A fresh, ripe medley of pineapple, peach, apricot and honeycomb awaken the senses. Secondary perfume of candied orange, quince paste, honey and baking spice complete the aroma profile.
A perfect match to the aromas, rich with citrus fruits, honey, peach and quince when entering the palate. This Riesling Icewine is fresh, full and is very fruit driven. Notes of peach jam, tangerine, honeysuckle and apricot compote are layered with rich texture and balance. It is balanced and round on the palate with refreshing acidity to match the sweetness. A medium bodied sweet wine with a long finish that lingers on the palate. This dessert wine drinks well on its own and pairs with many cheeses and desserts.
