Natalie's Score: 92/100

A gorgeous elixir of honeyed apricot goodness and rich peach preserves. Makes a wonderful dessert wine on its own or with fruit-based desserts.

Riesling Icewine food pairings: paté, foie gras, salty appetizers.

WINE MAKING
Naturally frozen Riesling grapes are hand harvested from Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyards at -10°C.

Grapes are pressed frozen, releasing only one drop of pure extract from each grape.

Fermentation is performed at a cool temperature to retain fruit concentration then aged in stainless steel.

FLAVOUR PROFILE

Straw yellow colour with an intriguing aroma of lemon drops, quince, Bartlett pear and golden raspberries, with just a drizzle of floral honey.

A luscious yet elegant mouth-feel with fruit flavours of lemon, melon, papaya, mango and orange.

Great balancing acidity on a perfectly sweet palate, finishing with flavours of lemon drops, marmalade, quince and floral honey.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
Gold – Best of Class – Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition 2009
Silver Medal – International Wine & Spirit Competition 2009, UK.
Silver Medal – International Wine Challenge 2009, UK.

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.
