Winemaker's Notes

Perfect for celebrating the Millennium, or as a gift, this very unique wine has been crafted by using Icewine as a cuvée. Inniskillin Icewine is made from grapes naturally frozen on the vine and hand picked when the temperature drops below -10°C. The removal of ice crystals, separated from 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. Produced by Karl Kaiser, Inniskillins Co-founder and Winemaker, the new Sparkling Icewine was made exclusively from 100% Icewine which went through a primary alcoholic fermentation in a sealed vessel, in accordance with the VQA "Méthode Cuve Close." This process of making the "cuvée" took seven months, and the wine was also aged on the lees for the same length of time. Following this, it was filtered under pressure to preserve the fine, naturally evolved bubbles (CO2) that were produced during fermentation. Nectarines and apricots dominate the nose with a hint of lychee nut in the background. On the palate this wine shows a very delicate but lively effervescence which is balanced beautifully by the generous natural acidity. Inniskillins Sparkling Icewine is best served chilled or after a meal.
