This is a concentrated and intensely sweet version, with bright acidity to match, framing its flavors of apricot, apple cider and lemon candy, which stay persistent on the long finish. Drink now through 2018.

High-toned apple-cider aromas on the nose belie the gorgeously fresh palate. This is lip-smackingly good, with a concentrated fresh-fruit flavor that’s sweet and bright with notes of hibiscus nectar and honey. It lingers long and smooth on the finish.

Harvested at 40.16 Brix and retaining a whopping 255 g/L residual sugar, this wine shows a complex medley of notes ranging from fresh baked apple pie to apricot and cinnamon. It’s thick and rich in feel with stone fruit and dried orange rind flavors persisting through the long-drawn-out finish.

This racy version is sweet but balanced more on the tart side, with baked apple, apricot and honey aromas and flavors. Nice length. Drink now through 2022. 1,600 cases imported. -BS The Vidal Gold Icewine starts with an enticing nose of tropical fruit, honey and spice. Mouthfilling, intense flavors of peach, mango and apricot follow, balanced by crisp acidity. Clean but complex, the wine unfolds extravagantly on the palate. The wine can age and will intensify as time passes. - S.K. ** SOLD OUT **
