Riesling Icewine 2019 | 187mL
White Wine - VQA Niagara Peninsula
The frozen grapes were harvested in early December 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 complete a natural cold stabilization.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
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. Well-balanced with a lively acidity.
Serve at 12°C. Pair with rich foods such as foie gras and soft creamy cheeses, including Blue or Stilton, as well as sweet berry desserts and dark chocolate.
