100% Vidal grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula.
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
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.
This is probably the best wine I have ever had. Very sweet (but I love sweet wine), both my husband and I loved it. It was very rich in flavor, light on bubbles.
