Cabernet Sauvignon Icewine 2017 | 187mL
Red Wine - VQA Niagara Peninsula
The frozen Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested in late December 2017 when temperatures fell between -10ºC and -13ºC. After settling the juice in stainless steel tanks, cool fermentation was completed in late-February when the wine was placed outdoors to stop fermentation and to complete natural cold stabilization. The wine was stored in solely stainless steel for a period of 8 months before being filtered and then bottled.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
Bright red in color with aromas of ripe raspberries, red cherries and strawberries. The palate is complex with sweet cherry flavors followed by jammy characters leading to a finish full of raspberry and strawberry notes. The touch of sweetness is nicely balanced by lively acidity. This wine provides a great harmony between sweetness and spice. Serve chilled to approximately 12°C.
Enjoy with a fresh strawberry tart topped with whipped cream or a slice of cherry cheesecake!
