Vidal Icewine 2019
VQA Niagara River | 375ml
Vintage & Viticulture
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. Average picking temperatures ranged from -10 ˚C and -12˚C and was harvested on January 9, 17 and 21st, 2019.
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. Enjoy on its own or with fruit based desserts. A classic pairing is with a fine blue cheese. Can also be enjoyed as an aperitif or mixed with vodka for an Icewine martini!
