Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The 2017 Riesling Ice Wine comes in with 268 grams or residual sugar, 9.98 of total acidity and a pH of 3.29. The price applies to a half bottle. Firmer on the finish and showing a lot more tension (which is only a relative term with these wines), this would easily be my pick of the stickies this issue. It's more powerful, more tightly wound and a little fresher. The finish is longer. The Vidals on their own are terrific, but this just seems to add a little something extra. That finish, of course, is delectable and succulent.
