BEST ICEWINE - 2017 Northwest Wine Summit
GOLD - 2017 Northwest Wine Summit
A classic sweet wine, this Riesling is the perfect balance between sweet, acid and alcohol. Rich notes of lemon, honeysuckle, guava and stone on the nose give way to honey, lemon flan, and honey flavours all balanced with crisp acidity. A treat with lemon based desserts, on vanilla ice cream or just on it’s own.
Winemaker Notes: GRAPE VARIETY: 100% RIESLING REGION: BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
Food Pairing Notes: Pair with foie gras and walnuts or with lemon tarts to enhance the citrus flavours on the finish. To be enjoyed on its own as a liquid dessert or as an aperitif. A dessert should not be sweeter than the wine or the wine will appear drier than it actually is, thereby losing the luscious sweet taste that is so characteristic of a dessert wine.
