Rich soft tannins balance this wine, resulting in a symphony of flavours; reminiscent of a port, but with more initial fruit flavour. Food Pairing: Accompanying chocolate, nuts and cheese or as a dessert on its own.

Growing Conditions

Red icewines are unique, since traditionally icewines have been white. Grapes for this wine were picked at -10 C or colder; cold enough to freeze the berries solid. During pressing, all the sugars, acids, and flavour components slowly drip out, leaving the berries’ water content as ice in the press. A natural concentration results, with no altering of the delicate fruit flavours. The sweetness is balanced by the concentrated acidity and tannins. Icewine can be likened to a liqueur, having however lower alcohol levels more typical of a table wine.

Palate

Luscious cherry and blackberry aromas with rich soft tannins resulting in a symphony of flavours; reminiscent of a port, but with more initial fruit flavour.

Food Pairing

A dreamy delight accompanying chocolate, nuts and cheeses….or as a decadent dessert on its own. The epitome of wine. Nature’s gift to mankind as liquid gold.
