(2020) Icewine is a realy Canadian speciality, the grapes harvested in sub-zero night-time temperatures so that much of the water content is dispelled when the fruit is pressed, leaving a super-sweet, thick and unctuous dessert wine. This is a very good example, made from Vidal which always gives a warming, golden, honeyed aroma of ripe apricot, here the engine-oil thickness of the wine on the palate sweet and exotic, like the ripest mango and lychee, a burnished toasty background, then very good lime jelly acidity to balance. A great wine in half-bottles, for very sweet desserts or to sip on its own after dinner.
(2006) This 'mini-icewine' is harvested very late, well into the thick of winter frosts. It has lifted, glacial and sherbetty aromatics, with fine lemon and peachy sweetness on the palate.
(2006) Beautifully clear, limpid nose of honey and quince with floral notes, leading to a thrilling rush of glacial, sweeping lime and honey flavours with a core of precise acidity.
(2006) Darkening yellow colour with a flood of apricot and honey. Fantastically rich, full-flavoured palate, with luscious honeyed fruit, a core of lemon, and some herbal nuances.
(2006) This fine wine has a beautiful lemon-meringue-pie nose with a core of honey and lime. Pure and luscious on the palate, it is shot through with tongue-tingling acidity.
(2006) This pale, chestnut-coloured wine has 195g/l of sugar and a nose of delicate rose hip and cherry. Summer fruit compote flavours are married to pepper, nutmeg and good acidity. Fascinating.
(2006) This is loaded with ripe apricot and nut kernel notes, with touches of mandarin orange. On the palate it has fine acidity and a weight of unctuous, limpid fruit.
(2002) Situated in Niagara, fermentation is in stainless steel at low temperature and can last two months. Fine, fine quality here immediately obvious on the nose. Lovely, bright, peach and pear fruit with a warm nutty quality, displaying a gloriously lush, apricot kernel core. Good backbone of acidity on the palate, with weighty tangerine and apricot fruit. Viscose and mouth-coating, this has delicious balance and great length.
