2019 Gewürztraminer Icewine (Ice wine)

Winemaker's Notes

Citrusy clementine, pineapple and apricot aromas mingle with quince and a delicate flinty twist.  This luxuriously creamy nectar has flavours true to the nose, suggesting citrusy fruit cocktail, honey and ginger, with a lingering, sweet caramel aftertaste.

Picked by hand at the Malivoire Estate Vineyard on the -10° C evening of December 18th.  Grape sugars averaged 41° Brix.

After stainless steel fermentation (no malolactic fermentation) the wine was settled and clarified in tank for three months and bottled in April 2020. 

Alcohol: 11.1%; Residual Sugar: 240 grams per Litre; Titratable Acidity: 7.3 grams per litre; pH: 3.75

Quantity bottled was 358 cases.

Sweet: 185 g/L residual sugar

Enjoy now to 2027.
