Ice Wine 2015 (Half bottle)Kracher
€ 30,19 (in Vat)
The 2016 Ice Wine is a blend of 23% Pinot Gris, 71% Neuburger and 6% Muscat Ottonel, all unoaked. It comes in with 161 grams per liter of residual sugar, 7 grams of total acidity and 11.5% alcohol. Clean and bright, this isn't on the heavy or unctuous side, but it lingers nicely, the finish laced with pineapple and peach nuances. It is pretty delicious, the lifted fruit all the more appealing because the wine is so fresh. As it warms, it shows gentle tension on the finish. The balance makes it easy to drink and hard to resist. These tend to age well, but this obviously has little track record. Let's start here and see where we are when we get there. The price references a half bottle.
