It has the typical icewine flavours (tropical, mango, peach, apricot) with honey notes, and it has a spine of clean acidity that cuts through the natural sweetness very effectively.

Winemaking Philosophy:
Great wines do not happen by accident. Serious winemaking starts in the vineyard. It continues through harvest, fermentation and cellaring, All practices whether in the vineyard or the winery are focused on one solitary goal- the best possible wine achievable
