Gorgeously rich and concentrated with succulent aromas of flavours of pear, peach preserves, honey and orange marmalade. Finishes with golden apricots, honeysuckle and some baking spice. Extraordinary length and persistence of flavours.

|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
Pale gold in colour with aromas of lychee, honey, peach and oranges. It is rich and viscous with flavours of candied orange, honey and lychee. It is very well balanced with a long finish and should be enjoyed on its own but would also pair nicely with fresh fruit.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
What a gem. Deeply concentrated aromatics matched on the palate with a rich smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Mouthwatering acidity, long finish with persistence of ripe juicy pear, ripe apricot, green mango. A fantastic Niagara Icewine declared at 9.5% ABV. Paired well with a dessert latter of seasonal favourites and drank equally well on it's own. Amazing quality. Loved this wine!
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Incredible! A definite 'mouthgasm' inducing dessert wine right here! I'm thoroughly enjoying it's rich, luscious notes of stewed apricot, candied citrus, lemon honey and baking spice. Try with mango and peach flambé. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketasings.ca

Loads of stone fruit, lemon, orange peel and baked apple here. Great freshness and acid to balance the sweet. 91 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

Jackson Triggs icewine is usually quite the bargain - especially around Christmas in Ontario. This one is produced woth Vidal - a cross between two brandy varietals (Trebbiano Toscano and Rayon D'Or).
This icewine is in its baby stages (as of 2017). 2015 was an all around great harvest season, though.
It is light and bright right now. The colour is a delicate pale lemon, though if you age it, that will deepen into a rich amber colour.
There is a smoke and honey note that leaps out immediately. It is followed with some nice fruit cocktail and raisin notes.
The flavours are pretty classic Vidal - nectarine, peach jam, pineapple, golden apple, and clover honey.
Great long finish. Keep this for a few years, still, if you can.
Be gentle when opening icewine, as the moisture in the cork tends to leave more quickly because icewine is more viscous.

Tastes filled the tongue with orange marmalade, peach and honey. Not overly sweet for an ice wine, great balance. Would be great on its own or with a dessert that holds similar flavours.

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lots of pear, orange, honey, and even some orange zest on this lovely Vidal icewine. Full bodied and nicely balanced with a long finish. Try with Stilton or whatever else might be on your after dinner cheese plate.
