1999 Ice Wine Riesling (half-bottle)-93 points Wine Enthusiast-
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 complemented by a tingling tangerine acidity that lingers forever.
1998 Oak Aged Icewine(half-bottle) -92 points Wine Spectator-
Featuring a cornucopia of fruits - lychee, mango, nectarine and peach - gently wrapped in a blanket of gingerbread and honey. The lusciously rich, intensely balanced acidity of tangerine and stone fruits create a mouth feel unlike any other. Savour each sip.
1999 Cabernet Franc Icewine(half-bottle)Showcasing a vibrant pinkish-red hue. A cornucopia of mixed aroma's, ranging from herbal notes, pepper and spice to red currants, fresh raspberry, and strawberry jam. Bursting flavor sensations upfront, flow to a smooth mild finish.
Inniskillin Reidel Icewine glasses:
The Riedel Vinum Extreme Inniskillin Icewine Glass is designed specifically to accentuate the balance of sweetmess, crisp acidity and richness of Icewine. The glass stands 23cm tall and has the Inniskillin logo blown into the base. In the Fall of 1999 a group of international wine experts gathered in Toronto to decide on the optimum shape for the world´s first ever Icewine glass. With copious notes in hand, 10th generation Austrian glass-maker, Georg Riedel, President of Riedel Crystal, returned home to develop a prototype for an Icewine glass that would then be produced at Riedel´s glassworks in Austria. Nine months later, following a series of refinements and consultations with Inniskillin and the experts, the new glass went into production, as part of Riedel Crystal´s stunning new Vinum Extreme design series.
