Inniskillin Reserve Riesling Icewine (375ml) - Last Stocks

Niagara Peninsula, CANADA
$95.00 Bottle

Notes sourced from Inniskillin

Excellent conditions in the 2015 growing year set the Icewine grapes up for success. With a few freeze/thaw occurrences throughout the winter months the sugar levels and flavour concentrations were at their peak just prior to the Icewine grape harvest. The consistent frigid weather allowed us to reach our optimum harvesting temperature which enables us to maintain our high quality standards with the desired sugar levels and acidities in good balance. January 4th, 2016 brought ideal temperatures of -10º C to begin Inniskillin’s thirty-second Icewine harvest. One of the quickest on record, Vineyard Director Gerald Klose and Winemaker Bruce Nicholson began early morning and finished picking all estate fruit and receiving all grower fruit by the end of the day January 5th.

This unique Canadian product was harvested at the height of Canada’s crisp winter. Naturally frozen on the vine and then picked when the temperature drops to a frigid -10°C. Only a few drops of concentrated nectar can be squeezed from each bunch. The juice is then slowly fermented to achieve a rich, specialty wine know as Icewine. This 2015 Riesling Icewine was fermented at a cool 15°C for 21 days until a perfect balance of sugar, alcohol and acidity remained.

Tasting notes: Aromatics of fresh orange, lemon, lime and spice . On the palate this rich and elegant Icewine boasts smooth texture and concentrated flavours of peach and apricot along with a hint of clove balanced by a crisp, lively acidity.Residual sugar 235 g/l.
9.5% alcohol
