Mid straw yellow. Summer yellow stone fruits, spiced pear and candied citrus. Lovely balance of super sweet juicy fruits and tangy acidity, the long finish has notes of honey, and candlewax.
"So delish with ripe peach, pear, tropical fruit and pink grapefruit flavours sweet and balanced on the palate. Chill and pair with creamy blue cheeses, peach pie.
Vidal Icewine food pairings: custard tarte, fresh fruit cup, blue-veined cheeses." Natalie MacLean
