City Winery Wins ‘Best Georgia Grown Wine’
The ice wine-style Vin du Glacier also wins Best Dessert Wine at the prestigious 2017 Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge
ATLANTA, GA – City Winery Atlanta is pleased to announce that its Vin du Glacier, Gone with the Vin, has been awarded ‘Best Georgia Grown Wine’ and ‘Best Dessert Wine’ at the Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge.
The event recognizes exceptional Georgia-produced wines from winemakers across the state. Wines composed of Georgia-grown grapes, and/or are processed in-state are eligible for the annual competition.
Made with Vidal Blanc grapes grown in Dahlonega, Georgia’s Three Sisters Vineyards, the winning wine’s grapes were cryogenically frozen to produce a more concentrated, sweeter juice.
“City Winery is humbled by this prestigious award for our Gone with the Vin dessert wine,” said City Winery’s Chief Winemaker David Lecomte, who oversees winemaking at all locations.
“When excellence in Georgia wine growing meets an exemplary facility in the heart of Atlanta, anything’s possible. This wine is the result of a great relationship between City Winery and its grower, and we dedicate this award to Doug Paul from Three Sisters Vineyards, who unfortunately passed away recently.”
Gone with the Vin has notes of ripe apricots and walnuts, a balanced acidity and sweetness, and a warm, concentrated honey finish.
Gone with the Vin pairs well with sweets such as lemon meringue and crème brulée as well as with saltier foods like cheeses and charcuterie. City Winery dishes, such as the Chai Tea Panna Cotta, also bring out the flavors of this delicious wine.
