Wine Review: This very nice Ice Wine made from Vidal Blanc is Excellent! It is goldenrod colored and opens with a golden raisin and apricot bouquet with hints of molasses. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich, nicely balanced and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is a very tasty apricot and orange marmalade blend with hints of golden raisin and honey. The finish remains sweet and drifts away nicely. This very nice dessert wine would be perfect for with cheddar cheese and sliced green apples. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This lusciously sweet wine fills the mouth with flavors of apricot, raisin and honey, with a crisp finish of pineapple. Vidal Blanc Ice Wine pairs beautifully with fine appetizers like pate de foie gras and a wide array of desserts - fruit and nut tarts, cheesecake, ice cream, fresh fruit, creme caramel and chocolate mousse are just a few examples. Served well chilled, if possible in cordial glasses.
