Perfect apricot ice essence of crystalline happiness preserved in a wall of glacial sculpture with fissures of silver beam acidity. Translation: a lovely rich yet refreshing icewine to pair with angel food cake or biscotti.

Riesling Icewine food pairings: crème brûlée, chocolate mousse, fresh field berries in cream, apple dumplings.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Sweet and luscious! A gorgeous Riesling Icewine from one of the top Icewine producing regions of the world, Ontario, Canada. Succulent stone fruit, honey, petrol, with spicy notes are all balanced with great acidity leaving a long sweet and clean finish. Enjoy with rich desserts or full flavoured cheese (my favourite for this wine, Blue Haze). Tasted February 2016. 94 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Oh so rich and smooth is this Riesling Icewine. Loads of apricot and peach aromas to fill a room. Add to that aromas and flavours of oxidized apple, honey, white blossoms, juicy peach, minerality, sweet baking spices and a lift of petrol. The sweet ending goes on for what seems like forever. Refreshing acidity helps cleanse the palate. I would only pair this with salty cheeses or overly rich desserts. This is dessert on it's own. Follow it with coffee.
Tasted: February 2016
This enticing Niagara dessert wine comes packaged in a gift box. Attractive lemon zest and lime drops. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
