2003 Platinum Merlot Icewine
This rare style of red icewine makes an ideal digestif.
First, the red fruit aromas enchant you, then silky textures and fruit flavors of caramelized figs, plums and cherries are followed by a spicy finish. The high alcohol balances the sweetness, making for an ideal dessert wine that can be served to the most honoured of guests.
Made with grapes from a vineyard in transition to gaining organic status
