One of the first Canadian Icewines was produced on this property. Our Vidal Icewine includes grapes harvested from our oldest 12-acre block of Vidal vines planted in 1981. Grapes for the Grand Reserve are exclusively picked from the oldest vines on the estate. Average picking temperatures ranged from -10 ˚C and -12˚C and was harvested on January 14th and 18th, 2016.
The juice pressed from clean fruit was carefully fermented for a five month period, with temperature-controlled fermentation (less than 15°C), using selected yeast for cold slow fermenting. The wine was both fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to highlight the complexity of stone fruit components found in Vidal.
Layered aromas of tropical fruit, honey, apricot and peach follow through on the palate. This very fine Icewine parallels some of the finest dessert wines in the world. A sweet desert wine highlighted and balanced with a fruit fresh, crisp acidity.
"Deeply aromatic with marmalade and plums. Rich and syrupy but with balancing fresh, orangey acidity."
