Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Smacks of peach cobbler with hints of honeyed pears, apple and lemon zest. Mouthwatering acidity keeps all those sweet nothings in check! This is so decadent why pair it with anything? Enjoy is sipped on it's own.
Tasted: February 2017
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Liquid heaven in my mouth! Honey, candied citrus and hints of praline dominate the aromas and flavours. Enjoy with citrus pavlova. Tasted Feb 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Vidal Icewine piques your interest right away with its nose of honey, lemon and cardamom. The citrus notes float over the luscious, honeyed palate making a nice balance of flavours. Delicate spices linger on the honeyed finish. Quite delightful. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This delicious dessert wine showed lush aromas and flavours of apricot and peach preserves accented with rich honey notes. Crafted in Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula appellation. Consume on its own or with peach cobbler and your favourite vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Peach, apricot, and honey on the very typical nose. Great length on the fruit on the palate and finish. Intensely peach. A fine dessert wine to accompany blue cheese, dried fruit, or peach cobbler.
Pondview Gold Series 2015 is a pale-gold Vidal Icewine from the Niagara Peninsula wine region has rich and sweet ripe stone fruit and marmalade, vanilla flavours on the palate matched by bright acidity. A perfect dessert on its own chilled or with fruit cobbler or flan. - Community Wine Reviews
