Wedding Cake Wine

Apple Varietal: 57% Macintosh, 18% Empire, 18% Lobo, 9% Spartan

With a rich gold color lightly red, has notes of hazelnuts and apricot at the nose. In the mouth, apple and apricot notes mixed with a long and persistent flavor of honey and citrus. Cryomalus means frozen. The apples are frozen and then pressed just like Ice Wine. This would be an outstanding treat with the wedding cake and used for a toast as well. So delicious - a refreshing blast to re-awaken your palate and get ready for dancing the night away.
