Ganton and Larsen Prospect Winery the Lost Bars Vidal Icewine 2006

External Review by Appellation America:

The new Prospect Winery, a Mission Hill spin-off, is releasing this icewine in the half-bottle format for general retail distribution and in a 200 ml format for restaurants. One would have expected the reverse – the more affordable size for consumers. Restaurants can surely get through the larger format more easily selling dessert wine by the glass. The bottle size aside, it is the same wine and a good example of icewine from one of the Okanagan’s best icewine vintages. Freezing temperatures arrived in the first week of November when grapes were plump and healthy. The good solid freeze, which lasted for several days, enabled winemakers to extract vibrant flavours and lots of sugar. This wine has 220 grams of sugar per litre after having fermented to nine per cent alcohol. It begins with aromas of honey and apricots, leading to flavours of peaches and apricots. Beautifully balanced with racy acidity, the wine has a clean, zesty finish, admirably lacking the cloying sweetness of lesser quality icewines.
