Peller Estates Vidal Blanc 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 Vidal Icewine is a crystal-clear expression packed with intense dried pineapple, pear sorbet, honey, crunchy peach, brown sugar caramel and lemon drops. A perfect partner with crème brûlée, panna cotta or apple strudel.
