Very sweet, medium bodied, viscous, spicy, Seville orange marmalade flavours with a lingering, high acid finish. Has 9.5% alcohol and now according to the LCBO only184 g/L residual sugar (vs. 248 g/L residual sugar). TONY ASPLER / 94-points / TRY - Old gold colour; spicy, honeyed tropical fruit on the nose; medium-bodied, rich and mouth-filling unctuous honeyed mango flavour; beautifully balanced with great length. A REPEAT of the recommended 2014 (***/***+) that was last released on November 25, 2017 at $67.00.
Spicy, Sweet, Rich
||Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
|TASTING NOTE: It's a very full bodied, powerful, very sweet and profound riesling icewine with classic if youthful aromas of pear, lemon, spice and a hint of evergreen. Very viscous and almost tropical, with deeply embedded lemony acidity. Great focus and length. Some will want a more linear riesling icewine, but this is very impressive. Outstanding length. Score - 93 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, March 26, 2016)
