Peller Estates Riesling Icewine Ultimate Wine Shop 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Made of 100% Riesling. Fermented and aged at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks for optimum fruit concentration. This wine has notes of ripe peach marmalade, layers of sweet and fresh tropical fruit, honey and hints of white pepper. The flavors are an explosion of pineapple, apricot, floral honey, oranges and cardamom spice with lemon drops and spicy oak to harmonize the long finish. Pairs well with pate or foie gras, blue veined cheeses and spicy Asian cuisine. Serve chilled at 8-10ºC.

It all began in 1927, when my grandfather, Andrew Peller, first arrived in Canada from Hungary. Having owned a series of successful businesses, he came here to finally pursue his dream. He envisioned a day when Canadians, like Europeans, would come to appreciate premium-quality wines and enjoy sharing them with family and friends. After exhaustive research, he decided to plant his first vineyards in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley and, soon afterwards, to open a modest winery in that province as well. As the seeds of his dream were firmly taking root out West, he began looking eastward. Many years and countless setbacks later, he and my father, Joe (who was by then very much involved in the family business), finally made a breakthrough. An offer to purchase a winery and winemaking license in Ontario was accepted in the spring of 1969. Read less

Outstanding ice wine ... complex and incredibly well balanced. Was not over sweet as some ice wines tend to be.

Enjoyed even more the second time around. Definitely improving with age. Lots of complexity with aromas of peach, apricot and honey. Great acidity and balance. Love this wine.

Wife's nephew gave it to us from Canada. A little too sweet for my taste but very satisfying. The texture was smooth and thick just enough to linger in the palate. Very good dessert wine.

Over the top fruit, elegant and intense. Rich and full but finishes dry and refreshing. Perfect for foie gras or the cheese trolley
