Cuisine - - NZ SWEET WINE -

THIS YEAR’S TOP New Zealand sweet wine pays homage to the no­ble va­ri­etals of ries­ling and gewürz­traminer. It cham­pi­ons all that we love in ice wine styles; pure rich­ness and op­u­lence.

Whether you sub­scribe to the the­o­ries of alchemy or not, this wine cer­tainly lives up to its name, defin­ing its own shapes and bounds. Con­cen­trated aro­matic notes of turk­ish de­light are sus­pended in a rich, golden hue with a pow­er­ful palate that is in­tensely sweet, fo­cused and bal­anced, beau­ti­fully show­cas­ing the blend of ries­ling and gewürz­traminer.
