A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. AloisKracher or his son was a consultant on this wine..and it shows. It's labeled only has an Ice Wine but is much better & complex than almost all Ice Wines I've had and seems to have a fair amount of botrytis in it.
I took it to dinner w/ some friends. One of the ladies (unknown afore to me) hailed from Romania. She thought it was, by far, the best Romanian wine she's ever had.
