From the 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. True Ice Wines are rare in our corner of the world; our unique climate is excellent for capturing the intense sweetness and crisp acidity necessary for top-notch dessert wines. This opulent treat will keep you wishing for more.
Wine Enthusiast 94 Points, Cellar Selection – Kiona’s ice wines are legendary, and this latest is as excellent as any they’ve done. Butterscotch scents invite further exploration. As the wine coats the mouth, it comes into lush focus with brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, cooked banana and more butterscotch. It’s low in alcohol, but maintains sufficient acidity to stay buoyant and lively.
