Pelee Island Vidal Icewine Halves 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Pelee Island is Canada’s largest independent winery and also the largest estate vineyard covering 600 acres. Nestled in the western basin of Lake Erie, Pelee Island is Canada’s Southern most inhabited tip of land. Home to over 10,000 indigenous species, Pelee Island is the environmental pride of Canada. Below the 41st parallel, it is as far south as Mendocino, California, Rome and Madrid and is Canada’s warmest region with a growing season over 50 days longer than mainland Canada. No insecticides are used in the vineyards and only a 100% island grown natural fertilizer, sorghum soudan grass, is applied.

The Vidal Icewine received a Gold Medal at the Citadelles du Vin at Vinexpo, the highest accolade. Grapes : 87.5% Vidal, 12.5% Riesling Region: Canada / Pelee Island Notes : This dessert white wine is lusciously sweet and smooth with rich, concentrated aromas of apricots and peaches Serve : Enjoy its superb tingling acidity and extraordinary length of finish as a sipping wine or as an accompaniment to semi sweet desserts. ABV : 12.5% Suitable for Vegetarians



Tasting Notes:

Icewine is produced from grapes which are left on the vine in the autumn and then hand harvested in December and January when temperatures fall below -10 C and the grapes have frozen solid naturally on the vine concentrating the sugar. This dessert wine is lusciously sweet and smooth with rich, concentrated aromas of apricots and peaches.
