2005 Riesling Ice Wine
Rich concentrated flavors of apricot and honey with subtle nuances of minerals flow out of the glass. A delicate balance of sugars and natural acids in the wine creates harmony while crisp acidity balances the residual sugar resulting in a clean, refreshing finish.
Some of the oldest Riesling vines in the state (47 years old) were selected for this ice wine. Grown on a steep southern slope in shallow, sandy, high carbonate soils, these Riesling vines are cropped very low (2-3 tons/acre) allowing for great intensity and concentration of flavors in the resulting fruit.
