Spectacular! I love the combination of toffeed richness and zesty effervescence. This is a real treat to try this holiday if you've never done so (and even if you have).

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I didn't think I liked Ice Wines until I tried the Inniskillin family of Ice Wines. Fresh and vibrant with flavors of citrus and tropical notes. Loved it. Treat yourself today
Kathy reviewed this wine as follows:

Purchased Summer 2012?
From Inniskillin, the masters of Icewine, comes another classic. Medium yellow-gold colour leads to a nose featuring honeyed mango, lemon meringue pie, dried apricot and sweet applesauce, plus a touch of grated ginger. Sweet with terrific weight, a lovely seam of acidity, and texture. Lots of complexity and extract here. Full bodied with a long, mouth-filling finish. Enjoy as dessert itself.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
