Avondale Sky Martock Late Harvest 2014
This product is currently sold out.
This wine was made from grapes harvested one week before icewine grapes
were picked. After pressing (at -6 degrees C) the concentrated select late
harvest juice is released at almost 30% sugar, with enough acid and flavour to
keep the wine balanced. The result is a wine with all the flavour and aroma of
icewine but with a far more approachable profile.
Look for notes of peach, apricot, and tropical fruit with a hint of marzipan on
the nose. The palate reveals ripe tropical fruit with quince, peach, and a
balancing finish with a touch of minerality. This wine exhibits the perfect
balance between intense sweetness and refreshing acidity.
Suggested Food Pairings:
This wine pairs well with spicy Asian food, sweet and sour appetizers,
blue cheese, or apple pie served with aged cheddar.
