Winemaker's Notes

Inniskillin Icewine, recognized as one of the world's finest specialty wines, is truly a gift from nature to wine lovers. Harvested at the pinnacle of Canada's crisp winter, exceptional grapes are naturally frozen on the vine and hand picked when the temperature drops below –10°C. The removal of ice crystals, separated from the frozen grapes during pressing, concentrates the juice into a delicate nectar that is expertly guided through fermentation to achieve the rich and alluring specialty known as Icewine.

For centuries, Riesling has been a highly regarded grape variety for Icewine. This vintage is characterized by loads of up-front fruit on the nose with a true Riesling flinty, petrol-like background note. Very rich and full on the palate with distinct orange blossom and honey notes.

"Rather varietally distinctive with upfront aromas of flint, petrol and candied apricots followed by a seductive scent of orange blossoms. The lusciousness on your palate of ripe nectarines is complimented by a tingling tangerine acidity that lingers forever. As with all dessert wines, first and foremost, the wine should always be sweeter than the dessert. Also, avoid strong citrus-based desserts. Fruit based strudels, rich cheeses, tarts or apple, pear, peach or apricot desserts pair well."
