Vintage & Viticulture

One of the first Canadian Icewines was produced on this property. This Vidal Icewine includes only select 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 December 15thand 19th, 2016.

Winemaker’s Notes

The juice pressed from clean fruit was carefully fermented for five months, 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 flavours

Tasting Notes

Layered aromas of tropical fruit, honey, apricot and peach follow through on the palate. This Icewine parallels some of the finest dessert wines in the world; a fresh, crisp acidity on the finish to perfectly balance the sweetness. Enjoy on its own or with fruit based desserts. A classic pairing is with a fine blue cheese.
