Naturally frozen Vidal grapes were hand-harvested from Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyards at -10°C. Pressed frozen, each grape releases only one drop of pure extract. Fermented at a cool temperature to retain fruit concentration, then aged in older French and American oak barrels for four months for added complexity.
Our award-winning Icewine has a beautiful bronze gold colour with an aromatic bouquet of honey, sugared hazelnuts, sweet spice and tropical fruit. The luscious mouthfeel has explosive flavours of papaya, guava, gooseberry and melon with notes of exotic spice, marmalade and butterscotch lingering on the finish. An amazing concentration of acidity softens the sweetness of the wine and leaves a refreshing finish. Best enjoyed now through 2018.
Serve chilled at 8 to 10°C in small white wine glasses, 1 to 2 oz per person. Enjoy before a meal, chilled with your favourite vodka and a couple of frozen grapes for an amazing Icewine Martini. During a meal with paté or foie gras; prosciutto and melon; Thai mango salad; or as a wonderful companion to spicy Asian cuisine or Indian curries. After a meal pair with fruit based desserts with apricots, pears, sweet citrus and tropical fruit; nut based cakes; Christmas cake; spiced fig cakes. For the cheese course, Icewine pairs with soft, blue veined cheese, creamy brie or aged cheddars.
