Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous Niagara icewine. Full-bodied, deeply concentrated, rich. Bursting with ripe nectarine, ripe peach, apricot jam, clover honey. Pair with Thai coconut infused mango sticky rice, Greek baclava, or asian-fusion. Tasted the 2017 vintage in November 2018. 94 points.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This icewine had ALL of the tropical fruits - guava, passionfruit, pineapple, and a touch of baking spice(nutmeg). Pair with plain lemon meringue pie or cheesecake
Wineboy rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Canada makes the best icewine in the world. Apricot and peach. This example has all the freshness needed to keep you wanting more and more. One of the best Vidal icewines I've tried in a couple of years.
Pam Hatton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Golden hue hints at the honey and peach nose and palate. Rich caramel, medium acidity and long finish

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
