TASTING NOTE: Strewn has won a place in the hearts of Vintages customers and fans of Icewine with offerings such as this 2013. Our panel was really taken with the apricot and tropical cantaloupe as well as the apple tones they encountered here. The high-toned honey note adds a pleasant complexity. Bright acidity and good structure. A nice option for blue cheeses. (Vintages panel, April 2016) Price $ 24.95
