Wines / Dessert / Riesling Icewine

Riesling Icewine

A true Canadian treasure, Icewine can only be produced when the temperatures plunge below – 8˚C (17.6˚F) and the grapes naturally freeze on the vine. The resulting juice is lusciously sweet, but also beautifully balanced with the vibrant natural acidity that BC wines have become known for.

Tasting & Pairing

Bright aromas of mango, pear, honey and marzipan lead you into a decadently sweet palate of stewed pear and guava. The wine is beautifully balanced with lively acidity and a mouth-watering finish. Serve well chilled with panna cotta, tarte tatin or a cheese platter with an array of creamy and blue cheeses.

Winemaking

Our small lot production of Icewine was hand harvested overnight at – 11˚C on November 7, 2017 at Fipke Vineyard in East Kelowna. Picked at 36.4 brix, the naturally frozen clusters were pressed prior to being fermented in barrel for 6 weeks.
