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.
