A blend of three grapes, this unusual ice wine merges bright fruit and floral components of Vidal Blanc and Muscat with the smoky, gamy tones of the hybrid grape Marechal Foch. It's intense with honey and apple flavor, but spiked with distinct whiffs of smoke and potpourri. Balanced with bright, orange acidity, it finishes with a hint of lemon-pith astringency.
