Riesling Icewine (375ml) Wine Details
Price: $50.00 per bottle

Description: A remarkably aromatic Riesling Icewine that follows the pedigree of the great Riesling Icewines that have preceded it. Elevated aromatics of intense peach pie and apricot jam leap from the glass closely followed by lovely tropical fruit aromatics of mango, papaya, orange marmalade and melons.

The finish is nothing short of heavenly as it is long, evolving and rich. Enjoy with desserts of exotic tropical fruit salads, sabayon, biscotti, vanilla ice cream and traditional pies.
