Sweet, Caramel, Seville Orange Marmalade
|TASTING NOTE: Herbert Konzelmann has been making wine in Niagara since the 1980s, and Icewine is one of his specialties. This one is decadently sweet yet quite bright and lively, with apple, pineapple, honey, mango and apricot and a subtle suggestion of fresh mushroom on the long finish. Sip with apple pie and vanilla ice cream, or savoury pastries with truffle butter. (Vintages panel, Aug. 2017)
