Our 2013 Muscat Canelli was harvested at an optimal maturity of 30 brix which produces a delightfully fruity wine with floral aromas of ripe peaches and apricots. It is wonderfully refreshing with flora aromas of ripe grapefruit and lemon pound cake-an extraordinary combination of sweetness and crisp balance with 12.5% residual sugar. Pair with spicy dishes, peppery sauces or a light dessert. Serve Chilled!
2013 Claar Cellars Columbia Valley Riesling Estate Ice Wine 375 mL
Manufacturer: Claar Cellars
Brand: Claar Cellars
Weather conditions fell to 7 degrees Fahrenheit and the grapes were allowed to freeze on the vine before harvesting. The frozen grapes were pressed over many hours in order to squeeze out the juice that was measured at 38 degrees brix. The wine was fermented to 12 percent alcohol and then stopped leaving 20% sugar in the wine.
2014 Estate Red Mountain Kiona Vineyards and Winery - Chenin Blanc Ice Wine 375 ml
Manufacturer: Kiona Vineyards and Winery
Brand: Kiona Vineyards and Winery
We pick these Red Mountain Chenin Blanc grapes during a deep freeze in order to coax the concentrated juice needed for a dessert wine of this caliber. This involves monitoring vineyard temperatures deep into the night and picking at the right time to ensure optimal flavor and sugar extraction. Kiona is an Indian word that means brown hills. The family owned winery helped pioneer the Washington wine industry when it planted some of the area's first vines in 1975. Two proud generations of winemaking and viticultural excellence are captured in this outstanding wine.
Bright yellow. Aromas of apricot nectar, honey and marzipan, lifted by a spicy candied ginger nuance. Lush, round and very sweet, offering palate-coating pit fruits and honey flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. In a decidedly rich, decadent style, leading to a sweet, spice-tinged finish that lingers impressively. - Vinous Media
