Wine Review: This goldenrod colored Ice Wine from Inniskillin opens with a mild apricot bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, concentrated and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is a tasty apricot with notes of orange. I also detected a faint hint of raisin towards the end. The finish remains sweet and its flavor linger and last for quite a while after the wine is gone. This wine is a dessert by itself and can be served on its own. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Riesling Icewine shows the elegance of tropical aromas and flavours of lemon and lime. The good acidity of Riesling allows for a refreshing mouth feel amid the many layers of flavours that unfold. Great with lemon based desserts or tarts along with fresh fruit based desserts; rich cheeses accompanied by fresh or dried fruit or your favourite fruit compote. Delightful all on its own!
