Selaks White Blend Marlborough Ice Wine 2006
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Not too viscous or syrupy. this could probably be confused in a blind tasting for a sweet riesling. woo-wee this is tasty with granny smith apple and pineapples for days. I haven't smelled this much petrol since the last Australian riesling I drank. That's what she said? Definitely not what I was expecting when I screwed the cap off.

External Reviews for Selaks White Blend Marlborough Ice Wine
Winery notes This seductive wine reveals the secret of producing an outstanding ultra-sweet wine; optimum balance between fruit sweetness and crisp clean acidity. Made predominately from Riesling and Gewurztraminer this wine never fails to make friends. It tastes sweet and oily yet never cloying.
Selaks, a long-established family estate on New Zealand's north island, now has a second winery in Marlborough, where this luscious dessert wine is produced. A blend of Riesling and Gewürz, the wine's honeyed sweetness is balanced by fine acidity.
