Kiona Ice Wine 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

About the Wine - We pick these Red Mountain Chenin Blanc grapes during a deep freeze in order to coax the concentrated juice needed for a dessert wine of this caliber. This involves monitoring vineyard temperatures deep into the night and picking at the right time to ensure optimal flavor and sugar extraction. Tasting Notes - Aromas of honeysuckle and tropical pineapple practically leap out of the glass. The intense sweetness is framed by generous acidity, elegant herbaceous grasses, and ripe apricot. Wine Enthusiast (March 2014) 94 Points, Cellar Selection - "Kiona’s ice wines are legendary, and this latest is as excellent as any they’ve done. Butterscotch scents invite further exploration. As the wine coats the mouth, it comes into lush focus with brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, cooked banana and more butterscotch. It’s low in alcohol, but maintains sufficient acidity to stay buoyant and lively. Residual sugar is a hefty 170 g/L." - P.G. Appellation - Red Mountain Vineyard - Kiona Estate Residual Sugar - 17.2% by volume

The Williams family planted the first vineyards on what is now known as the Red Mountain Appellation in 1975. Since then, Kiona Vineyards and Winery has developed a world-wide reputation for releasing wines of extraordinary quality year after year. Few wineries can claim to have the historical consistency in quality that Kiona is known for. For their unyielding determination to produce world-class wines, founders John and Ann Williams were among the inductees of the Washington Wine Hall of Fame in only its second year in existence in 2007. Kiona's wines have been winning awards against higher-priced competitors for several decades; in fact, Son and Winemaker Scott Williams has placed two wines on Wine Spectator's prestigious "100 Best Wines of the Year" list. Even after growing grapes and making wine for over 30 years, our passionate pursuit of quality in all aspects of our business perseveres. We hope you enjoy drinking our wine as much as we enjoy making it. Read less
