I had this when I was down in Seattle. Sauterne is this super super sweet ice wine from France. It's hard to take more than a few sip before you get overwhelm by the sweetness. However, if you chill the wine in a freezer for awhile, then you get to experience all its complex and amazing flavours without the coyness. Yum! Good value too.

Quality: Outstanding! Ready to drink but can keep.
