Inniskillin Ice Wine Ice Riesling

Winemaker's Notes:

Viticulture/Vinification Inniskillin Icewine, recognized as one of the world's great wines is a gift from winter to wine lovers. Harvested at the pinnacle of Canada's crisp winter, the grapes are naturally frozen on the vine and picked when the temperature drops below -10º . Only a few drops of luscious nectar can be extracted from each bunch, which is expertly guided through fermentation to achieve the rich and alluring specialty known as Icewine. Tasting Notes Sublime aromatics of fresh lime, apricot, grapefruit and peach blossom with a slight minteral edge. A racy interplay of sweet and tart offer up echoing balanced flavours of lemon, lime and candied apricot. Food Pairing Suggestions Perfect on its own as a dessert, or an excellent match to fresh fruit, rich pâté or fine blue veined and cream based cheese. Alcohol/Volume: 9.5 % Dryness: 22 pH Level: 3.33 Residual Sugar: 220g/L Total Acidity: 10.4g/L Serving Temperature: 5-8º C Oak Aging No

A very young, floral style Riesling nose. Shriveled grapes rather than Botrytis character. A hint of lavender. On the palate it really seems to confirm that its not Botrytised but rather a shriveled grape concentrated style. Much more of a floral
