Konzelmann Estate Winery Vidal Ice Wine . Mini 2001

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

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.

The Konzelmann Estate Winery was established in 1984 on the shores of Lake ontario by the Konzelmann Family. Herbert Konzelmann picked the location for the winery on the shores of Lake Ontario because the soil conditions and micro-climate of the region are ideal for making premium-quality white wines. Herbert Konzelmann - Friedrich's Great Grandson, 100 years later continues the family tradition of making fine wines Lake, Ontario, Canada in Niagara. The Konzelmann Estate Wines are enjoyed by wine enthusiasts from over the world. It's a great travel destination for all wine lovers. The Protection Provided by the Nearby Niagara Escarpment, combined with the moderating influence of the lake, provides a longer growing period for the "noble" Vitis vinifera vines of Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Chardonnay grapes. The cool-climate viticulture conditions are often enhanced by a "Indian Summer" warming in autumn that allows a late harvest. The fine acid balance and natural sugar content of the grapes are maximized and the wine is full-bodied. Read less

Very tasty, exhibiting candied berry, dried apricot and mandarin orange notes framed by a lively structure. Developing nicely, it appears to have plenty of reserve. Drink now through 2012.

Dark golden luster. Moderately full-bodied. Highly extracted. Honeyed aromas lead a fruity palate that turns a little syrupy through the finish. Impressive, though only for drinking in small quantities.

Muscatlike floral notes embellish this wine's apricot jam flavors, making it feel both substantial and delicate. Enjoy on its own.

Apricot, honey, and tropical fruit flavors swirl in the mouth of this rich, sweet wine. The finish of this ideal sticky lingers nicely.

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.

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.
