2015 Carretto Vidal Icewine 375ml
The 2015 vintage was warm and dry with lots of sunshine during the day and cool refreshing nights. There was no sustained heat wave, nor any unusually heavy rains, leading to a slightly warmer than average summer. The well established varietals had no issue with the lack of heavy rain and faired quite well. These are the typically warm summer we have in Niagara, and aid in developing good, if not great fruit characteristics.
A stellar Icewine which encompasses fantastic aromas of floral notes, honey, candied orange peel, peach and apricot. You’ll find intense flavours of pineapple, lychee, and honey on your palate, as well as a voluptuous texture, balancing acidity and long finish.
Pair this classic Vidal Icewine with bleu cheese, crème brûlée, New York Style cheesecake, or simply enjoy well chilled by itself.
