2009 Changyu Golden Valley Ice Wine, Gold Diamond Label, Liaoning

Sold Out

The lightest of the three ice wines made here. Residual sugar is 140g/l. The wine is made from the juice of the third crush and accounts for 75% of the estate’s total ice wine production. Because the fruit for ice wine is frozen, but healthy and not botrytised, the attack is always very fresh and pure, with a very positive level of acidity. Here the profile is more of citrus and tropical fruits, blossom and honey. Creamy desserts work well, such as crème brûlée, or try simply with tropical fruits like pineapple or mango.
