Inniskillin Sparkling Vidal Icewine Halves 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Inniskillin was founded in 1975 by Austrian chemist Karl Kaiser and Italian-Canadian agriculture graduate Donald Ziraldo, who worked tirelessly to introduce better vines and superior winemaking techniques to Niagara. In 1984, to make the most of the extreme Canadian winter, Kaiser produced his first Icewine - a pivotal point in garnering attention from the international wine world. Having been harvested at an average temperature of -10 degrees Celsius, the grapes were pressed immediately. The resulting juice was an ideal 37.7 brix for a sparkling Icewine. Inoculated with a very specific strain of yeast, the juice was allowed to ferment under pressure in a charmat tank at an average temperature of 17 degrees Celsius until it reached an alcohol level of 9.5%. Fresh aromatics of ripe tropical fruit dominate, while the effervescence in this unique style offers a dry sensation to the flavours of mango, peach and lemon.
