2011 Tundra Ice Wine

Sold Out

We made this wine from the American hybrid Vignoles.  We love the versatility of this grape.  In the vineyard it has the ability to grow in lower, colder areas and still produce top quality fruit.  In the winery, it’s ideal for blending or making sweeter dessert style wines.  Viscous and smooth, with excellent acidity to balance the sweetness, Tundra demonstrates this versatility.

Vinification

4 tons of Vignoles were hand harvested and pressed.  The juice was like honey and so sweet it was almost too much.  A long, slow fermentation that was halted with about 15% residual sugar resulted in an incredible treat.  One to be share with friends and family after a dinner celebration. 

Aroma

Tropical fruit explosion

Flavor

Very sweet with a bracing acidity that gets you in the back of the tongue.  This wine will linger on your pallet for several minutes

Visual

Brilliant, golden color

Food Pairings

The perfect after dinner drink to pair with a salty cheese, or better yet chocolates made by Chocolate Exotica of Traverse City infused with the ice wine.
