I don't get this often and I alway enjoy this wine when presented it.

Golden in colour with a slight orangey, rosey hue. honeyed, floral, the 2005 is a bit lighter in body than others I think, lacking the complexity that a few more years should bring. Orange, clementine, a hint of caramel, good acidity and a good long finish. Body is medium plus, this is not the thickness of icewine but something lighter. Well made!
