Inniskillin Niagra Estate Riesling Icewine 2018 (Gift Boxed)

Grapes for the classic Inniskillin Riesling Icewine are harvested from select vineyards of the cool climate Niagara Peninsula. Thanks to the warming influence of Lake Ontario and the Niagara River, the region's temperatures during the fruit-ripening phase are moderate and consistent. Picked at -10°C, the frozen grapes were pressed immediately, removing the ice crystals to leave a small amount of highly concentrated juice. This Riesling Icewine has an abundance of vibrant lemon, lime and white peach aromas on the nose and palate. Concentrated and richly flavoured the wine is balanced by a crisp lively acidity.

“The 2018 Riesling Ice Wine comes in with 268 grams or residual sugar, 9.98 of total acidity and 9.4% alcohol. Scrumptious and a little syrupy, admittedly, this is not for the shy, but it's not intended to be. It's lip-smacking good with the flavors and aromatics of crushed peaches. Many will find it irresistible now. Personally, I prefer these with considerable age on them, when the gentle oxidation over time imparts complexity and nuance and the sugar impact moderates. It is, to be sure, a very different vision of the wine in 2035. Reasonable minds might differ. It should age well, perhaps notably more than indicated. The price applies to a half bottle.”
