Susan Desjardins reviewed this wine as follows:

This Vidal icewine went through primary fermentation using the ‘Cuvée Close’ Method, during which it was also aged on the lees. The wine was then filtered under pressure to preserve the mousse which develops during fermentation. The result is a beguiling honeyed sparkling wine with sweet floral notes, and luscious aromas of ripe pear and apricot. The fine persistent mousse, paired with tangy acidity and lush fruit, delivers finesse and balance. Just outstanding! Enjoy with paté or with fine cheeses such as Upper Canada`s Comfort Cream or Kootenay Alpine Cheese Company`s Alpindon.
