*Vintage may vary by location*

This unique Canadian product was harvested at the height of Canada’s crisp winter. Naturally frozen on the vine and then picked when the temperature drops to a frigid -10ºC (14ºF). Only a small amount of concentrated nectar can be squeezed from each bunch. The juice is then slowly fermented at an average temperature of 15ºC (59ºF) to achieve a rich, specialty wine know as Icewine.

Aromatics of tropical fruit including mango and orange dominate, on the palate fruit flavors including peach, nectarine and lemon are balanced by crisp, lively acidity.

Intensely aromatic, this wine brings concentrated flavors of peach syrup, apricot jam and candied pineapple. Lush and tongue-coating, the sweetness (250 g/L residual sugar) is adequately offset with acidity, and as it rolls down the throat brings added layers of maple syrup, butterscotch and butter brickle.

The 2017 Vidal Icewine comes in with 255 grams of residual sugar, 9.79 of total acidity and a pH of 3.55. Unctuous and rather syrupy, this is a sugar rush from the first moment. The flavors and aromatics, though, are classic. The wine itself is delicious. It is fun to just smell. This is super, a hedonistic and sexy wine with a big, flavorful finish. The juicy finish dribbles sugar and fruit all over the palate. The next day, this seemed to be in better balance and fresher but also a touch thinner. It is nuanced with some tasty pineapples.
