Cave Spring Riesling Icewine 2006

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

A thick dessert white, this shows concentrated orange marmalade, grape and honey flavors, with a slight burnt edge. It's balanced by a tangy acidity, leaving a clean impression on the long finish. Drink now through 2015.

A dessert wine with finesse, harmony and richness. Spiced apple, yellow plum and candied grapefruit notes remain lively due to the bright acidity. Complex and long. Drink now through 2018.

Granny Smith apple, spice and zesty tangerine notes are bolstered by crackling acidity in this lively white. There's nice length and definition, finishing with a lingering, mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2014.

Serious stuff here with a sweet/tart component that has my dentist rubbing his hands with glee. Unctous and packed with apricot, mandarin orange and ruby grapefruit flavors that remain focused and vivid, then melt away on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2008.

Almost too sweet, it practically makes your teeth hurt. It has nice orange and apricot flavors and crisp acidity, but lacks the complexity of fully botrytized wines. Sweet and simple, like drinking candy.

This dessert white pushes the envelope with ripe and exotic tropical fruit and resinous aromas, settling down to apricot compote and honey on the palate, where it's rich and concentrated. Thick and round, with enough acidity for balance, it ends with rhubarb and caramel. Drink now through 2005.

The nose is diffused and confused at this early stage, but shows almost tropical pineapple fruit. The palate seems sweeter and richer than previous years, with fine lemony acidity rising to the finish. Fleshy. Excellent length.
