 Where to Buy

2014 Finger Lakes Wild Ferment Ice Wine Riesling Maybe it's the youth of this wine. Maybe it's the wild yeast ferment. Maybe it's winemaker Dave Breeden's meticulous management such that the yeasts never encounter a must-weight higher than 30 Brix. This remarkable ice wine from Sheldrake Point is thoroughly transportive, from its exotic hue to its scents of saffron, Thai pineapple and demerara sugar. It offers magnificent concentration and propulsive acidity: Intensity and beauty in effortless harmony. (213 cases) —Patrick J. Comiskey
