Sue-Ann's father, Howard Victor Staff, was as committed to family, farming and community as his ancestors. He was a staunch supporter of Sue-Ann's career, relishing her success. As he particularly loved Sue-Ann's Icewines, this wine is named in his honour. 


100% estate fruit from our vineyard within the Vinemount Ridge appellation, clay soil with limestone rock base. Warm vintage equalled ripe, opulent fruit with developed flavours. Pressed at –10C, cool fermented in stainless steel over 4 months with selected yeast. Sterile filtered with no additions or fining required.

Tasting Notes 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.  Ideal with: blue cheese particularly Roquefort, foie gras and rich patés, Crème Brûlée, Sabayon, custards



"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. " IWSC panel 


"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 

"Bitter lemon, orange and mint on the piercing nose. Lovely waxy texture, with honeyed lemon and pineapple." Decanter World Wine Awards
