The Zweigelt Icewine grapes were grown in Westbank in certified organic vineyards: Kalala vineyard and Paynter Family vineyard.
This small batch of Zweigelt icewines was fermented slowly over a three month period using a specially selected yeast called 2 TD. The grapes came into the winery at a well balanced 38.5 Brix level.
Picking started for this long-hanging fruit on January 12 at 4:00 am when the temperature dropped to -9 degrees and got progressively colder through picking.
It displays aromas and flavours of dried fruit, toasted hazelnuts and butterscotch.
Velvety texture and balanced acidity
This port-style icewine is brick coloured.
