This Ice Wine entices your nose with aromas apricot marmalade and fresh squeezed passion fruit juice. The palate is rich and sumptuous with tropical fruit flavors of guava, blood orange and candied pineapple with a clean finish.

Winemaker Notes

arAn Estate wine produced in the classic manner from vine frozen estate grapes hand harvested and pressed immediately; then fermented cool. In the late summer of 2013 a block of premium Riesling grapes was identified and covered by netting to prevent predation by birds and deer. On three dates in January of 2014, the temperature reached the ideal Ice wine harvesting temperature of 14F overnight and we harvested and immediately pressed the frozen grapes to get 340 gallons of juice. It fermented for 180 days at temperatures between 60 and 70 F, and was filtered and bottled on 9/10/14.
189 cases were produced.

Food Pairing

Our Ice Wine will make any meal a special occasion and pairs exceptionally well with each course. Try with fresh fruit or frozen grapes as an apertif, Creole seasoned Crabcake or duck confit for dinner. A small wedge of camembert cheese or poached pears also make for a great dessert match.
