2016 Riesling Ice Wine

Sold Out

Tasting Notes

Aromas apricot marmalade and fresh squeezed passion fruit juice on the nose. A rich and sumptuous palate, with tropical fruit flavors of guava, blood orange, and candied pineapple with a clean finish.

Food Pairing: The 2016 Riesling 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.
