Peller Estates Cabernet Franc Icewine 2013

Peller Estates’ Icewines' are some of the most coveted sweet wines in the world. Their vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula are blessed with the perfect conditions for crafting this style of dessert wine - a labour of love that yields a tiny drop of intense juice per grape. The grapes are naturally frozen, then handpicked in the dead of night in the freezing Canadian winter, and finally pressed while still frozen. The wines can be sipped chilled as an aperitif, with dessert or alongside salty snacks, cheese, pâté or foie gras. The adventurous may also consider using them in cocktails, especially as an alternative to Vermouth in a Martini. The Cabernet Franc icewine is deep salmon pink in colour with an aromatic bouquet of rhubarb, raspberry, blackberry a touch of spice and herbal notes. A rich mouth-feel with wonderful fruit flavours of red berries and rhubarb. Red currants, spice and pomegranate on a long lingering finish. Soft delicate tannins and the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity provide great mouth-feel.
