I’m pretty sure I totally failed to spot the Icewine in Paper 3, and certainly undercalled the whopping 266 g/L RS! Anyway, a lovely Icewine. Pale amber. Pronounced, bruised lime and mandarin, with tinned peach and peach skin notes. Touch of spice and cream. Almost pumpkin aromatics. Luscious, jelly-like texture. Super-sweet, but powerful acidity (10.8 g/L TA). Upfront bruised / tinned peach fruit. Flavour falls away a little on the finish.
