Regular price $24.99 NZD
Te Mania Ice Riesling is a delicious and seductive wine made from Riesling grapes. It balances the sweet concentrated fruit flavours with firm acidity to create a special wine.
Fantastic on its own or you could match with fruits, nuts and cheeses. Skip desert and create a platter of your favourite after dinner nibbles to enjoy with friends.
Tasting: Beautiful notes of citrus, honeysuckle, jasmine and apple blossom aromas. Lovely balance of sweet citrus, luscious apple fruit and tangy lime flavours. Fresh and intense, the wine is long and lingers with decadence.
Wine Making: Fruit was hand harvested at the peak of ripeness. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice cool fermented to capture primary fruit characters. The wine was frozen to concentrate fruit flavours and sweetness.
Analysis: Alcohol 11.5%, Residual Sugar 99 g/L, Acidity 9.0 g/L
It is fabulously fruited and fragrant on the nose showing lemon curd, lime sorbet, apple and spice aromas, followed by a vibrant palate that displays elegant sweetness and bright acidity. It is beautifully balanced and lingering to a delectably refreshing finish. 4 ½ stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2018
