TASTING NOTE: As no Icewine is made at Featherstone, call this \"Icewine light.\" It's a late harvest Gew, picked just before Christmas from that miracle harvest in 2016. The nose shows pronounced apricot, canned peaches and super ripe grapefruit and citrus. It's quite ripe and delicious on the palate with exotic tropical fruits, especially apricot, and wild honey that finds some balance from the acidity.
