I love pairing the Riesling Icewine with cheeses and fruit based deserts.
Naturally frozen Riesling grapes are hand harvested from Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyards at -10°C. Grapes are pressed frozen, releasing only one drop of pure extract from each grape. Fermentation is performed at a cool temperature to retain fruit concentration then aged in stainless steel.
A luscious yet elegant mouthfeel with fruit flavours of orange, nectarine and lemon drop. Great balancing acidity on a perfectly sweet palate, finishing with flavours of lemon drops and guava. Best enjoyed 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 for a mouth sensation. Also a wonderful companion to salty appetizers. Serve with the cheese course which may include Manchego, 2 year old Canadian cheddar and creamy blue cheeses. After a meal, enjoy with lemon pound cake; apple strudel; pineapple upside down cake and poached pears.
