Why This Wine: The Pipe (like Port) is a dessert in itself with ripe cherry and dark berries on the nose, chocolate, plum, figs, vanilla and a nutty finish on the palate. As a chocoholic, I've tried it with a Madagascar chocolate bark chunked with Madagascar chocolate nibs. It's death by chocolate with a deliciously happy ending!
Why This Wine: The nose has aromas of apricot, fig and candied lemon peel with marmalade and baked apple notes on the palate. There is a beautiful balance of acidity and sweetness that lingers on the finish. Pair it with pineapple & macadamia nut tart or a chilled compote of peach, nectarine or apricot with crème frâiche.
Why This Wine: This full-bodied icewine displays intense honey, peach, and spice notes, combined with some lively lemon acidity on the finish. I had it for the first time with a caramelized lemon tart with sea salt and it was the beginning of many endings at the dinner table in my house!
Why This Wine: A delicious, frothy, just-barely dry bubbly from the Niagara region. I love this with a dessert that is filled with berries, or a plate of cheese and fruit. Recommended by a co-worker last fall, it's got a home in my heart.
Why This Wine: When I met winemakers Line and Jean Joly, I was impressed by their passion, particularly for their icewine. With its caramelized peach, apricot and honey flavours, I find that this beautifully balanced vidal icewine is an excellent match for fruit-based desserts.
