2012  Rielsing  Icewine

2012 Riesling Icewine

Medium gold in colour with concentrated aromas of sweet baked apple, pear, citrus and tropical notes.  Intensely sweet but well balanced, with a great mouthfeel and flavour on the finish.

Harvested and pressed at temperatures below -8°C, the intensely sweet juice was allowed to settle before being fermented at cool temperatures. Following fermentation the wine was aged for a short period, then was sterile filtered and bottled.
