Vibrant fruit notes reverberate throughout this wine with gorgeous minerality threaded throughout the palate and finish. Look for candied lemon peel, orange marmalade and peach jam with wet stone and balancing acidity. A lengthy seductive finish persists.

A wonderful Vidal icewine. Dominant Raw honey, ripe juicy lychee, sweet apricot, fragrant applesauce on the palate and nose. Deep creamy gold, sweet and rich with vibrant acidity. This wine is irresistibly delicious and pairs well with classic New York cheesecake. Tasted Jan 2016.
