This Niagara icewine is made from Cabernet Franc thus its strawberry red hue and the aromas and flavours of black cherry, spice and blackberry pie. Very sweet though there's balancing acidity. Pair with chocolate cake drizzled with raspberry syrup.

Cabernet Franc Icewine food pairings: blueberry grunt, cheese cake, Camembert, pecan pie.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Absolutely delicious. Strawberry-rhubarb flavour that would complement virtually any dessert you could imagine. Try Stilton cheesecake with rhubarb compote or homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie. Icewines are delicious with spicy Asian fare also, making these urber versatile and ultra sweet and refreshing wines great before, during, and after dinner. Tasted January 2016. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Simply delicious! Thick with intense aromas of strawberry, cherry, honey and blossoms. Bright acidity and lingering sweetness on the tongue. Icewine at any time is a great idea. On it's own it IS dessert or pair it with a rich assortment of desserts or salty cheeses for pure decadent pleasure. This Lakeview Icewine could be the perfect Valentine.
Tasted: January 2016
Founded in 1991, Lakeview Cellars icewine is produced in small quantities. The Cabernet Franc grapes were picked in the dead of night under a full moon and -10oC. - Community Wine Reviews
