A typical Cabernet Franc Icewine colour of
light salmon is displayed in this wine which usually has the most
elegant colour of all Pillitteri red Icewines. A nose which is young
and closed is also typical for the age and will open with further
cellaring. Presently, light wild honey, maple syrup and subtle floral
notes of purple violets fill the nose with a light straw complexity.
The elegant and lush palate ensues next with balanced acidity fully
filling the mouth with intense body and weight showing evidence of the
potential to come. Strawberry puree, kiwi, blueberries and black
raspberries dominate with mild tannin giving a supporting backbone.
The heavenly finish is not cloying. It is simply filled with wonderful
fruit complexities that linger for a great length. Enjoy with
chocolate, fruit based desserts, creamy desserts and blue cheeses.
