This German ice wine from the Rheinhessen is a pale golden color with mandarin orange aromas in the bouquet and orange blossom scents in the nose.
It has a unique presence in the mouth with floral and pepper layers. It is of course sweet and thickish with flavors of orange, stewed apricots and citrus. It lacks sufficient acid too carry it really well but it’s not bad. When you consider the price of a typical ice wine can be over $100 on up, this wine is a treat even if not a superlative dessert wine. For $16, (half bottle) raise a glass!
