TASTING NOTE: Chardonnay Icewine is not exactly typical so it is worth a try and this version happens to be a real stunner. Impressive depth with notes of beeswax and honey. Great progression and persistency of flavours on the palate. Sweetness is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity. A small bottle that is worth every $2 drop.
