Rich flavorful layers of dried apricots, caramel and honey with a touch of tangerine carry through to a long finish in this Vidal Blanc Iced Wine. Its luscious sweetness is balanced by a lively crispness on the palate. The grapes for this unique wine were picked, then artificially frozen. They were then pressed while frozen yielding a small amount of juice at 35% sugar. The juice was then slowly fermented at a cool temperature to retain the full complexity of flavors. Pairs well with salted nuts, hard aged cheeses or bleu cheese, spicy crab cakes, creole or Cajun spiced foods, smoked salmons, custards or crème brulee.
