Cave Spring Riesling Icewine 2007
External Reviews for Cave Spring Riesling Icewine
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.
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.
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.
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.
Golden and heady with pineapple scents, this Riesling's honey-lemon flavor is ready to chill for a fruit tart.
Lively lime flavors balance apricot richness for an icewine that feels poised and clean. It's an elegant pour to finish off a fancy meal, to serve on its own or with creme brulee.
