Growing Conditions

Sourced from sustainably farmed Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.


This is the second vintage of Chardonnay icewine produced by Tawse, the first being in 2008. Ageing this dessert wine for 12 months in 100% new large oak barrels has resulted in aromas of vanilla, apricot, honey and a touch of oak. On the palate is caramel and a touch of smoke, followed by a surprising tart finish.

Food Pairing

This is a surprisingly versatile icewine that can easily be paired with savoury and sweet dishes alike. Try it with blue cheese tarts or an assortment of cheeses for a contrast style pairing. Crème Brule or apple pie are perfect for a complimentary pairing. Of course this dessert in a glass can be enjoyed all on its own.
