Natalie's Score: 92/100

Dive into this gorgeous Niagara icewine with its raspberry preserves and strawberry-rhubarb jam aromas and flavours. The luscious red berry nuances come from the red wine grape base Cabernet Franc. It's an exotic treat that pairs well with darker, richer desserts than do the riesling and vidal-based icewines, though this one has just as much balancing acidity to avoid being cloying. Think chocolate cake. Rich and long and satisfying.

Cabernet Icewine food pairings: pumpkin, fruit flans, syllabubs.

Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Vinified from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes harvested at Henry of Pelham’s Short Hills Bench vineyards, comes this intense and lushes Icewine. Abundant aromas and flavours of sweet ripe strawberries and raspberries with a touch of spice. Well balanced acidity and a long, smooth. It stands on its own perfectly as an after-supper-sipper or paired with with dark chocolate desserts.
This Estate Winery dessert wine is produced from the Cabernet Franc grape, thus the red colour: unusual but delightful. Pair with chocolate desserts. - Community Wine Reviews
