Item Description
"Inniskillin Icewine, recognized as one of the worlds great wines, is truly winters gift to wine lovers. Harvested at the pinnacle of Canadas crisp winter, the grapes are naturally frozen on the vine and picked when the temperature drops to -10 degrees C. Only a few drops of luscious nectar can be squeezed from each bunch, which is then expertly guided through fermentation to achieve this rich and alluring specialty wine. This Okanagan Valley appellation wine opens with a mix of honey, beeswax, and dried apricot on the nose with a tantalizing essence of honey and dried apricot on the palate as well. A well rounded mouthfeel with acidity that balances out this naturally sweet dessert wine. Pairs well with sushi, pad thai, chicken liver pate, seared scallops and poached pears with mascarpone. Serve chilled."
About Inniskillin Niagara Estate Wines
Though Icewine's roots can be traced to centuries old German winemakers, there is nothing more quintessentially Canadian than this luscious luxury borne of patience and sub zero bravura. Grapes are left on the vine well into the winter months to concentrate and intensify the flavours, as water content freezes, thaws and dehydrates in each precious Icewine grape.

Made in the Niagara Peninsula

Ideally suited to the Canadian winter season in both the Niagara Peninsula and the Okanagan Valley, the magical process of crafting Icewine is guided by nature -- triggered by the snap of the wintry elements, the harvest can't begin until temperatures drop below minus eight degrees Celsius for a sustained period of time. Inniskillin produced its first Icewine in 1984 with harvest dates ranging as early as Dec. 2nd and as late as March 5th! There are rigorous specifications regulating the making of Icewine set out by Canada 's quality control and appellation of origin system, the VQA (Vintner's Quality Alliance). Artificial freezing of the grapes is strictly prohibited.

Extreme Winemaking

Once the extreme temperatures arrive, which is often in the dead of night, the harvest of the naturally frozen clusters begins. The precious grapes are then pressed in the extreme cold to extract the luscious nectar. In this process, the water content in each grape which is about 80% remains frozen as ice crystals. These crystals will remain inside the grape during pressing puncturing the skin for added flavours. The resulting juice is highly concentrated and rich. Icewine yields are a mere 10-15% of an average table wine harvest. Slowly fermented over the coming months, this delicate nectar will eventually become Icewine.

Intense Flavours, Pure Varietal Character and Great Balance

The finished Icewine is intense and concentrated with the natural sugars balanced with the natural acidities creating a unique sensation on the palate of a surprisingly dry finish. Renowned for its layers of tropical and citrus fruit flavours and aromas ranging from mango to peach to lemon to lychees, Icewine is truly a natural wonder and extreme winemaking at its best. Icewine styles range from non oaked to slightly oaked to Sparkling.
