External Reviews for Konzelmann Estate Winery Ice Wine Vidal
One of the more expensive Niagara icewines, Konzelmann lives up to its price tag with this stylish blend of marzipan and almond notes on the nose and an intense palate laced with macaroon and honey flavors. The long finish shows a nice acidic lift.
Winemaker Herbert Konzelmann founded this estate in 1984, on the banks of Lake Ontario in Canada's Niagara Peninsula. The winery offers a range of dry wines as well as this ice wine, a style that the area is particularly known for. One of the top-scoring Canadian ice wines to date, its grapes were harvested on a frosty, 14° F. day in January, and the wine fermented for almost two months in stainless steel before it was bottled.

Muscatlike floral notes embellish this wine's apricot jam flavors, making it feel both substantial and delicate. Enjoy on its own.
This golden-colored dessert wine has a rich, luscious sweetness with distinct aromas of apricot and honey. Tropical fruit flavors combined with a nice, crisp acidity are balanced and allow for an enjoyable, lingering finish. Great match for a berry tart.
