STYLE

Sweet dessert ice-wine style. The grapes are harvested at optimum acidity and flavour. They are then sent to a blast freezer and pressed while frozen. This gives concentrated sugar, acid and enhanced flavour whilst maintaining a natural balance.

Complex with layers of peach, apricot, lychee and melon, trailing off to a beautiful lingering spicy finish with a touch of honey. A perfect balance between intense richness and balanced acidity.
