Expertly crafted, notes of candied citrus fruit, poached pear, ripe peach, honey and spice balanced by refreshing acidity. Charming with a plate of artisanal cheeses or freshly baked apple pie.
These certified-organic Riesling grapes were grown in the Kalala Vineyard in West Kelowna. Picking started on December 9 when the temperature dropped to -9.5 and the fruit was at 39.9 Brix. 5.1 tons of grapes were picked giving 1,200 L of icewine.
We selected the 2 TD specialty yeast for the fermentation of our Riesling icewine. We did a long, slow fermentation for 60 days, keeping the fruit flavours prominent. Partial barrel aging.
