Natalie's Score: 92/100
Serious Platonic ideal of apricot preserves in this lovely Niagara icewine from Reif. Luscious layers of peach preserves fold over each other across your mouth and then bring on a tide of pleasurable sun-dappled orchard fruit on the finish. Pair with fruit flans and cobblers.
Vidal food pairings: spice cake, crème brûlée, fruit-based desserts, pastries, fresh field berries in cream.

|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A pioneer in the ice wine industry, Reif has been producing world-class ice wine for 30 years and the quality of their ice wine speaks volumes to that experience. The 2013 Vidal Ice Wine is a deep golden copper, the nose is rich and inviting with stewed plums, botrytis notes, buckwheat honey, baking spice, and sweet raisins. A repeat on the palate. Heavy, creamy, and rich, this 2013 Vidal Ice Wine will put a smile on your face. I paired with fresh Italian Cannoli and it was divine! Tasted November 2014. 91 points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino

An excellent value Niagara icewine. Nutty, canned peaches, apricot, Niagara tree fruit, and honey. Nice length on a creamy finish. Enjoy on it's own or with cheese and fruit platters, over fresh strawberries, plum pudding.
Tasted: April 2015
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Enticing honeyed fruit on the nose, with a luscious palate giving honey, peach and candied nuts. Perfumey with a silky mouthfeel and a long candied nut finish. A wonderful gift to finish off a special meal.
|This Ontario icewine is made from Vidal grapes, one of the most popular varietals for this dessert wine. Reif has been making this style of wine since 1984. The 2013 vintage delivers once again on the luscious promise of voluptuous flavours toffeed gingerbread and peach jam. Pair with fruit pie. - Community Wine Reviews|
