Ice Wine

Ice Wine Wine Details
Price: $45.00 per bottle

Description: Our exquisite ice wine is 100% Chenin Blanc with hints of honeysuckle and green apple in the aroma. The vivid flavors are reminiscent of peach and pear nectars. Intensely sweeet and gloriously flavorful in the initial mouth sensation; balance is achieved through acidity, which gives our wine a clean, dry finish. A delicious match for cheese and fruit trays, holiday pies or simply as an aperitif.

Varietal Definition
Chenin Blanc:
Classic white varietal of France's Loire Valley and now grown throughout the world. Known for its rather unusual 'wet-wool', 'damp straw' aromas, it tends to be more floral than fruity when young and gives high acidity, growing well in marginal climates. It ages well and its susceptibility to 'botrytis'* produces some of the great sweet wines of the Loire, for example Quarts de Chaume and Vouvray. It is grown widely in South Africa where it is known as 'Steen'.
