Description

Tasting Notes

A bright fragrance of apricot, honey and baking spices. The favors are dried apricot, honey, jam and a rich creamy note. The viscosity is high, giving the wine a full-bodied richness. Drinks nicely on its own or over grilled peaches or pound cake.

Winemaking

Dessert wines are interesting to make. Coyote Canyon has been making an ice style wine for years and I am excited to continue the tradition. We hand pick our Viognier and Riesling into small lugs and then put them into cold storage until the grapes are completely frozen. The pressing process is unique. When we put the frozen grapes into our press we only get a fraction of the yield. The juice that comes out is super sweet and thick. The fermentation takes a little longer than a normal fermentation but the results are magic.

This vintage has the aromas I like. The bright apricot and golden color are our trademark style. I hope you enjoy drinking this wine as it takes a lot of timing and effort to create.

Vineyard Designation

Coyote Canyon Vineyard – Horse Heaven Hills AVA

Vineyard Notes

2015 was a very warm vintage resulting in an early harvest. The grapes for the Sweet Louise are the last grapes of the season that we pick. We want lots of sugar so when we freeze the grapes we get an intense flavor profile. We like the way that the Viognier and Riesling work together.
