Our Covey Run Semillon Ice wine shows intense aromas of ripe mango and pineapple, with floral notes of honeysuckle, and honey. These aromas are balanced with zippy acid (think lemon vanilla cream sandwich cookies) and a long, lingering finish.
Imagine a cool, crisp winter night. Fresh snow is on the ground and the grapes are frozen on the vines. That's when these grapes are harvested. Pressed while still frozen, the grapes grudgingly yield a rich, concentrated juice that is fermented both in-tank and in new barrels.
The Covey Run Reserve wines are an expression of winemaker Kate Michaud's passion for Washington State's best-loved wines – Chardonnay, Merlot and Ice Wine. Handcrafted from the best of the best grapes from top vineyard sites in Washington's famed Columbia and Yakima valleys, these limited-production wines are rich and elegant with great intensity of flavor.
