Food Pairings for Inniskillin Vidal Icewine
Canada's Niagara Peninsula in Ontario is considered a cool climate viticulture region, like Burgundy, Germany, Oregon and New Zealand. These regions are ideally suited for the growing of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling as well as Gamay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Icewine. Quality Pinot Noir such as Inniskillin's Reserve Pinot Noir is best created under the cool climate conditions the Niagara Peninsula affords, where its elegance and finesse can find proper expression. Food Pairing: Desserts. These are an extreme extension of category 1 in the sense they are sweet dishes paired with off-dry or sweet wines. Virtually all desserts are sweet. Even lemon or rhubarb's tartness is balanced by adding more sugar. Another factor is that there is not a lot of salt added to desserts. On the red side the general rule of thumb is to serve dessert wines that are sweeter than the dessert. This is because they are all acid balanced. This acid will become more pronounced when you have a sweet dessert. If the dessert wine is sweeter than the dessert you don't notice the change in the wines acidity as much. Many times it is assumed that a sweet wine will combine with the sweetness of the dessert but actually it is just the opposite. The wine will generally be perceived as less sweet or crisper.
