SNOWANGEL ICEWINE DOSAGE SPARKLING RIESLING Traditional method, Mountainview Vineyard, VQA Niagara Peninsula
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer ANGELS GATE
NEW in Vintages this bright pale straw coloured 100% Riesling sparkler is made in the traditional method on the base of the 2017 Organic Riesling to which an initial 5% of 2013 Riesling Icewine is added as triaging liquor for fermentation and then another 5% added as final dosage liquor upon disgorgement. The result is very pleasant. The nose is slightly spicy with a faintly honeyed, ripe apple purée and orange citrus nose along with some mineral notes. It is fairly dry on the palate and medium to medium-light bodied with bright, gently spicy, honeyed, ripe apple-orange-melon fruit flavours and a lingering, harmonious, gently effervescent, fairly crisp finish. Ready-to-drink, it has 11% alcohol, 31 g/L residual sugar and 6.5 g/L total acidity with with lot number 17285218 on the lower part of the glass bottle. CSPC 24834
