Fritz Windisch 2008 Ice Wine Silvaner

$25.99
Electric gold color. Fruity aromas of honeyed golden raisins, caramelized peaches, praline, and orange blossoms with an oily, tangy, fruity sweet medium-to-full body and an even, complex, medium-long dried apricot and spiced apple finish with silky, soft tannins. A beautiful, dynamic and delicious dessert wine for all occasions.

A crisp, lightly smoky riesling with a lot of character and great acidity.

Clear emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of spiced apple and pear, lemon rind, rubber, and earth with a supple, tangy, dry-yet-fruity light body and an effortless, appealing, medium-length clementine and green apple finish with silky, fruit tannins and no oak. A refreshing and lively riesling that will be quite versatile.

Bright golden straw color. Delicate aromas of baked peach and lemon, sauna stones, golden raisins, and moss and diesel with an bright, dryish light body and a smooth, delightful, medium-length grilled green apple, dried peach in cream, touch of diesel, and rubber sap finish with fine, dusty, fruit tannins and no oak. A nicely restrained, but expressive auslese riesling vinified dry that opens up nicely.
