Sémillon Dessert Ice Wine 2013

Walla Walla Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

Our 2013 Ice Wine was crafted from our own Estate grown Semillon at Double River Ranch. A small portion of one of our high tier Semillon blocks was left at a low yield until late in the season to insure optimum ripeness, intense fruit flavors and the appropriate sugar level at harvest time.

The frozen clusters were handpicked in ice cold conditions at a brix of 48 degrees. The golden berries were then slowly pressed and carefully fermented with a special yeast strain for about 3-4 weeks. A slow fermentation at cool temperatures was achieved to bring out vibrant fruit characteristics. After fermentation was completed it spent precious time in French oak for 20 months to mature to perfection.

On the nose you will find beautiful notes of dried apricot, canned pear and ripe peaches. The mouth feel is round and viscous but yet possess firm acidity for balance and to ensure great aging potential.
