A perfect dessert icewine to pair with a fresh fruit cup, lush with tangerine, ripe peach, honey, dried apricot flavours and a touch of spice. Lovely balance of acidity to sweetness.

Vidal Icewine food pairings: fruit and custard tart, fresh berries with sweetened whipped cream.

Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The Golden Series 2019 Vidal Icewine is heavenly and delicious! Made by the PondView Estates Winery, located in the Niagara wine region, this Icewine offers plush aromas of apricot, papaya, mango, key lime, lemon curd, honey and vanilla. Light, with loads of sweetness and a zest of freshness, this Vidal Icewine delivers a coating sensation, and a long and velvety finish. On the palate: Flavors of apricot, yellow apple, cooked pineapple, honey, lemon curd, crème brûlée and pie crust. Warning: This Icewine will be difficult to share. Enjoy!
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful deep golden colour. Aromas of apricot, peach and honey, with the slightest hint of cinnamon. Full bodied, smooth and luscious on the palate, with vibrant, balancing acidity and bold ripe and jammy fruit flavours on the palate. Enjoy with warm apple pie.
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A sumptuous delicacy from Canada’s Niagara Peninsula region and PondView Estate Winery. Perfectly paired from Brie and phyllo pastry appetizers, sharp cheddars, or a variety of desserts.
Aromas of honey and candied apricots pull through on the palate, with a mouth coating luxurious finish.
Perfect as a hostess or birthday gift (including the birthday cake!).
Tasted May 2021.
From the Niagara Peninsula wine region, Pondview Gold Series 2019 is a full-bodied, sweet, succulent and softly spiced Vidal Icewine with ripe apricot, peach honey and sweet spice flavours. Pair with blue cheeses, roast salted nuts or an apple-peach cobbler. - Community Wine Reviews
