Tzafona Cellars 2015 Vidal Icewine
Tzafona Cellars Vidal Icewine...Yellow gold in color, with bursting notes of ripe lychees, dried apricots, honeysuckle and fresh ripe citrus on the nose. Full-bodied with a delightfully viscous, almost oily mouth-feel, on the palate again lychees, dried apricots and peaches, dried pears, candied orange peels, a touch of mango and honey with well-balanced medium to medium-plus acidity as well as notes of ginger and tangerines on the practically endless finish. Very special wine, unique and delicious.

Cabernet Sauvignon icewine complements berry-centered desserts whether you’re working with strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries. Or, if you’re serving a rich dessert like chocolate, custard, or a crème brulee, look for a Cabernet Sauvignon icewine so that the wine and the creamy richness of your dish won’t be in competition with one another.
