A Long, Long time ago, back before the dinosaurs, there grew in this place Native grapevines. This Port is made from the descendants of those vines, preserving the aromas of a long lost world. Join us for a Glass of the Past... of Native Port.
Golden nectar dessert wine manifests a luscious natural sweetness with distinct aromas of dried apricot and honey. Tropical fruit flavours intermix in the glass and combine with balanced acidity forming an enjoyable, lingering finish. - See more at: http://www.insidethecellar.com/konzelmann-vidal-ice-wine-375-ml.html#sthash.i8OkNEpa.dpuf

Hot and uneventful is how we would describe the 2014 growing season. We began with a mild late winter, rolling into a pleasant warm spring with very few frost events. Bud break occurred about the 10th of April, a little early but not unusual Heat built quickly with a much warmer than average late spring and stayed hot into mid-September. This set us up to declare 2014 the hottest vintage in our 30+ years of farming along the Snake River. Our white grape harvest began on September 10th, just as the heat of summer was transitioning to a mild fall and by November 10th the last of the red fruit was in the door. Winter came charging in and on November 15th the temperature had dipped into the low double digits and we were harvesting frozen orbs of Gewurztraminer for Ice Wine.
