L’Orpailleur Vin de glace

$30.00

Description

Sweet wine with apricot, honey, candied fruit and mango. Its complex flavours offer refreshing tartness, a nice balance with fruity overtones.


The 2018 vintage, which is currently on sale, won a Grand Gold medal at the 2020 Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada and is part of the Top 50 of this largest international wine competition in North America.

 

Elaboration method

An exceptional wine made from overripe grapes,winter-harvested at between -8C and -12C, thus promoting desiccation and a richer, more concentrated must. Whereas 100 kg of grapes usually yields 70 à 75 L of must, this is reduced to only 12 to 15 L of our precious ice wine.

L’Orpailleur Vin de glace
« A great wine! An overall beautiful product! A powerful and complex mix of candied fruit, tropical fruit, honey and flowers with intense flavour. An well-balanced and unctuous ice wine, with a fresh and long-lasting taste. Should be served cold (8C) with orange duck or a foie gras brioche.” »
