2016 Reserve Vidal Icewine 375ml
The fruit for our Reserve Vidal Icewine comes from our oldest and best vineyards. Our meticulous selection criteria begins in the vineyard and concludes in the cellar where we examine the final wine’s sugar, acidity, pH and alcohol balance to determine if it is worthy of our Reserve Icewine level.
A golden straw colour, this Icewine is explosive in the nose and on the pallet. With notes of ripe pear, lychees in syrup, floral aromas and candied citrus on the nose. The palate is intensely mouth-filling with flavours of peach, baking spices and tropical fruits. It’s sweetness is balanced by cleansing acidity which lengthens the finish.
This wine is perfect as an aperitif or digestif. It also can be enjoyed with stong cheeses (aged cheddar, deep-veined blue cheese, etc.) or desserts less sweet than the Icewine (focus on citrus flavours).
