Winemaker's Notes

Viticulture
100% Vidal grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula.

Vinification
This very unique Sparkling wine has been crafted using Icewine as a cuvée and produced in accordance with the "Méthode Cuve Close." During fermentation, the naturally occurring carbon dioxide is trapped inside the stainless steel tank and dissolves into the wine.

Tasting notes
Aromas of 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 harmoniously balances the generous natural acidity.

Food Pairing Suggestions
Sparkling Icewine, on its own, helps celebrate any occasion as an apéritif or will pair divinely with fresh fruit platters, fruit soup, fruit salad, poached fruits, soufflés, pound and genoise cakes, and sorbets. A delightful surprise with foie gras and cheeses such as Roquefort, Saga, Cambonzola, Blue Ermite, le Ciel de Charlevoix, Bleu de la Moutonniere, Bleubry Cayer, Cabrales, Mascarpone, Devon Cream, Torta and Gorgonzola.

Serving Temp: Well chilled 5 - 9°C.

Aging: Enjoy now through 2007.
