Reviews and Ratings

Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A really nice, not too syrupy Icewine…

Presentation: A traditional, non-descript label
Appearance: medium gold
Nose: honey, lemon, flowers, apples
Taste: sweet lemons and honey, some floral notes. Enjoy this Icewine on its own or with a non-sweet dessert (e.g., dark chocolate).
Finish: lemons.
Overall impression: I really liked this Icewine. It was easy to drink, but not too syrupy like many other Vidal Icewines. Château des Charmes did a nice job on this one. I would certainly drink this again.

Value: 4 out of 5
From Château des Charmes, a classic Niagara icewine mean to tantalize your taste buds, and sweet tooth. The honeyed tropical fruit flavours are nicely balanced with vibrant acidity. - Community Wine Reviews
