Keswick Vineyards-Nektar 2006

Member Review by ChipDWood:

Honeycomb in liquid form, this late harvest Viognier, synthetic ice wine (simply meaning they froze the berries themselves, then pressed) was possibly the biggest hit of our entire trip. Thick & rich, viscus and broad, the "Nektar" possesses one of the most unique and satisfying bodies of any domestic dessert wine I've tried. Uncanny balance, and a literal "honeycomb" soul that makes one happy to be around for the experience. Phenomenal. A five-spot on the Snooth scale.
