- The Wine
Lovers of Grüner Veltliner (a very sensible group) will be in seventh heaven with this Eiswein. Far from sickly and cloying, this has been created with perfect balance. The citrus acidity cuts through any possible syrupiness and elevates this wine above the norm bringing it into the same style and class as some of the better icewine from Niagara. Chill it down for a fresh, clean delight. It goes wonderfully with pâté and as an accompaniment to sweet courses, but I prefer it as a course in its own right!
Ben says of the 2013 (February 2017): If you ever loved the taste of cinder toffee then this is the wine for you!
Ben says of the 2016 (February 2018): This is even cleaner and lighter than the 2013. The cinder toffee is gone and replaced with fantastic tropical and citrus fruits. The balance is, once again, perfect. I didn't think that they could better the 2013 but, with this wine, they have. It is altogether sophisticated and accessible and I would put it up against many far more expensive and well-known sweet wines. Hoorah!
