Inniskillin Riesling Ice Wine 2007 375ml (Canada)
Riesling Eiswein grown on the Niagara Peninsula. Noble-rot, hand picked in the most severe conditions. Classic Riesling qualities are elegant citrus flavours such as fresh lime and grapefruit, as well as ripe orchard fruit tones of apricot and peach. Inniskillin Niagara is also characterized by a slight mineral edge.
The grapes used to make ice wine are left on the vine well into December. The ripe berries are dehydrated through constant freezing and thawing during the winter months, a process that concentrates and intensifies the flavors, giving ice wine its immense complexity. The grapes are painstakingly harvested in their naturally frozen state, most often in the middle of the night. While grapes for Icewine can legally be harvested at –8.0°C (17°F), winemaker Karl Kaiser prefers to harvest at temperatures at or below –10°C (14°F) for a higher-quality wine. The H2O remains frozen as ice crystals, and only a few drops of sweet, concentrated juice are obtained for this most unique of dessert wines
Sublime aromatics of fresh lime, apricot, grapefruit and peach blossoms with a slight mineral edge. On the palate there are myriad flavours of tropical fruits, stonefruit, red currants, citrus, pear, and apple. A robust and enticing palate of fresh fruit sorbets, cinammon strudel, warm almond cream tart and bread pudding. A racy interplay of sweet and tart offer up echoing flavors of lemon, lime and candied apricot. Sweet with bracing acidity and a tightly wound character that pulses through the long finish, Inniskillin Niagara is an outstanding experience, a superb and devastating wine
