SPECIALTY WINES

ROSEWOOD MEAD ROYALE

HONEYWINE 2015

Barrel aged, Canada

months in French oak barrels. It’s wonderfully floral

and nutty, with flavours of honey, peach and ginger,

moderate sweetness and a balancing acidity. (Vintages

ICEWINE

TAWSE CHARDONNAY ICEWINE 2013

6

VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario

TASTING NOTE: Sensational oak-aged sweetie that

will have you rethinking icewine. A powerful nose

of peach compote, grilled pineapple, tropical fruit

and layers of exotic spice. It is thick, rich, complex

and silky on the palate with peach cobbler, pineapple,

marmalade, caramel and nutmeg-cinnamon spice

that’s all balanced out by racy acidity. As noted, just

sensational. Score:
