Different to traditional Ice Wines, the grapes for Akarua's Alchemy are harvested at the same time as the other grapes for making dry white wines, and sent to a blast freezer to be frozen.
This ensures the grapes have racy acidity to balance the sweetness. Akarua use two types of German ice wine yeast which perform at low temperatures and high sugar levels to ferment the concentrated juice.
A glorious nose white stone fruit, baked pear and caramelised pecans; with heady notes musk, Turkish delight, rose petals and exotic fruits pineapple, lychee and guava.
A complex palate with a fruit salad of flavour and fine, persistent mineral and spice finish. Perfectly balanced between decadent richness and glacial purity.
