Natalie's Score: 92/100

A lovely, rich wine with aromas of peach preserves, ripe apricot and marmalade. Perfect for after-dinner, either with dessert or on its own.

Kerner Icewine food pairings: strong, rich cheeses such as Gargonzola or Brie, spicy or salty appetizers before dinner, fruit-based desserts.

Our Oldfield Series Kerner Icewine was harvested on December 7, 2009 between 7am and 9am. It was a chilly -11 Celsius when everyone arrived to start picking. It took 2 hours for our one acre of Kerner to be picked and another four hours for the grapes to be pressed. After pressing the Kerner was moved to stainless steel barrels where it fermented over the next six weeks. After fermentation the Kerner aged in the stainless steel barrels for several months before bottling at the end of April 2010.

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.
