Reviews and Ratings

Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Henry of Pelham hit it out of the park on this one...

Appearance: medium gold
Nose: lemon, citrus, honey, herbs.
Taste: lemon, citrus, nice, gentle acidity for this sweet dessert wine. Should pair very well with cheese or dark chocolate.
Finish: honey, smooth, well rounded.
Overall impression: A really well balanced icewine, not too sweet. Its lemony-citrus acidity makes it easy to go down. The choice of Riesling for this ice wine was an excellent one! If I open a bottle at home, it will not last.

Value: 3 out of 5
Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Ripe tangerine, peach pie filling, honey, candied lime, ginger, cantaloupe, and candied red apple on the nose. The acidity balances all of these beautifully on the palate. Long, honeyed finish. Would compliment peach or apple pies or pastries beautifully.
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Tastes filled with orange marmalade and honey with a buttery, toasty vanilla finish. Would pair well with creme brulée, a buttery pastry or a peach cobbler!
