Chenin Blanc Ice Wine, Kiona
While Red Mountain is known for big, powerful red wines, it's also an exceedingly good place to grow white varieties. Kiona Estate vineyard has four acres of Chenin Blanc planted in a depression, increasing the likelihood of producing Ice Wine. They don't pick the grapes until they are naturally frozen in the vineyard, a process that concentrates their sugar and flavor to unprecedented levels. Ice Wine is one of the world's most elusive and delicious elixirs. For decades they've produced this Red Mountain version with Chenin Blanc, a grape that showcases well-balanced, crisp acidity and intense tropical fruit characteristic that dances on the tongue.
