Greg scored this wine: 92/100
Inniskillin are not only one of the pioneers of Canadian icewine, they are pretty much a gold-standard. 2017 was a difficult year book-ended with uncooperative weather. Yields are somewhat lower than usual; making it a more scarce. Get it while you can!
This wine has a youthful sunny-yellow appearance. Some orange hues. It will darken over time to a marmalade-like colour.
Effusive aromatics. Quite striking that you can smell it even when the glass is nowhere near your nose.
Lots of floral character (acacia and orchard flower), apricot, peach, lemon, citrus zest.
The flavours are silky amd smooth, but with tons of fresh fruit. Lemon buttercream, honey, and stone fruit.
Riesling icewine is special, because natural acidity levels give it the balance to remain fresh and beautiful as it ages. This will actually age for quite a while; perhaps a decade or longer. As it does, classic aged Riesling aromas (like petrol and honey) will slowly become more prominent.
Try to not pair sweet with sweet for pairings. Remember that contrast matters. This would sing with some chicken mousse or paté.
