Akarua Alchemy Ice 2017 Central Otago -3 $45 ★★★★★
TOP 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.
