Available for:
Riesling is a classic vinifera grape variety suitable for Icewine. It's tropical and citrus aromas and flavours offer an elegance that are defined by its natural high acidity. Pair with oka, brie with lavender honey; firm aged cheddar or your favourite paté with pear or peach chutney; seared scallops with apple celery slaw; classic baked apples.

The 2018 Riesling Ice Wine comes in with 268 grams or residual sugar, 9.98 of total acidity and 9.4% alcohol. (This seems identical to the 2017, but the information provided on that was apparently wrong-that had only 240 grams of sugar and 9.5 of total acidity). Scrumptious and a little syrupy, admittedly, this is not for the shy, but it's not intended to be. It's lip-smacking good with the flavors and aromatics of crushed peaches. Many will find it irresistible now. Personally, I prefer these with considerable age on them, when the gentle oxidation over time imparts complexity and nuance and the sugar impact moderates. It is, to be sure, a very different vision of the wine in 2035. Reasonable minds might differ. It should age well, perhaps notably more than indicated. The price applies to a half bottle.

Sweet apples and peaches streaked with honey and caramel are the highlights here. Though it carries 230 g/L of residual sugar, it retains significant acidity, enough to put a lemony tang on the trailing finish.
