Big Head Riesling Icewine 2014
Power and depth, salted caramel, burnt lemon, marshmallow, grilled pineapple, flambéed banana. I know you can’t smell sweetness but everything is screaming in that direction. This icewine is powerful, long, and balanced. Flavour for days. Beautiful acidity keeps you from crying due to the elevated sugar. Serve this cold, and then let it come up to temperature. I wouldn’t have dessert with this, but if I were then it would be a simple vanilla Creme Brulée. Not many things can stand up to the burnt sugar on top, but I think this powerhouse wouldn’t have any issues.
