Tasting Notes

One panellist imagined carrying fresh hay into an old, but very well-kept, barn while another was drinking pineapple juice at a petrol station. The palate neat would probably reach yellow on the Scoville scale but it was well balanced by the sweet fruitiness of a tropical fruit syllabub adding plenty of honey and lemon juice and topped with a dollop of cream. After dilution we were out in the middle of a bitter cold night for the ice-wine harvest, picking those grapes left to freeze on the vine to create a sweet concentrated wine with that unique flavour making it an ideal aperitif or the perfect complement to a fruit-based dessert or indeed cheese.
