Riesling Reserve Icewine 2019 (375ml)
Golden yellow in the glass with intense aromas of apricot, nectarine, candied peaches, peach jam and wild honey.
The palate is unctuously sweet but balanced by ample acidity with flavours of grilled pineapple, golden brown sugar, candied ginger and golden raisins. The finish is long and lingering with flavours of pineapple up-side-down cake and apricots.
Enjoy on its own as the perfect dessert or pair with sweet or salty foods, blue cheese or spiced nuts. Drinking well on release but will continue to develop over many years into more complex flavours and aromas.

BRIX AT HARVEST
Only made in select vintages, 2019 turned into a perfect icewine harvest at 13th Street. The grapes were in pristine condition so were left until the first frozen pick in December 2019 and the second frozen pick in February 2020. The grapes were pressed frozen and then transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. At 210.6 grams/litre of residual sugar remaining in the wine, the fermentation was stopped leaving a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. After a further 6 months in the tank, the wine was bottled in November, 2020.
