Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This delicious dessert wine overflowed with compelling aromas and flavours of peach and apricot preserves drizzled with creamy honey. Crafted in Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula appellation. Serve alongside peach gelato or consume on its own. Enjoy.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of ripe peach, apricot and pear with a hint of warm spice. Full bodied and luscious on the palate, with bright, balancing acidity, and rich, ripe fruit notes on the palate. Hints of cinnamon remind me of Thanksgiving. Enjoy with apple crisp or apple pie.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lovely peach, apricot, and honey aromas. Lusciously sweet with poached pears on the palate. Calls for lemon meringue pie or peach cobbler.
Love Vidal Icewine. This one from the Niagara Peninsula is produced by Tzafona Cellars and called Cold Climate and is. This is a vegan-friendly Vidal with honey, sweet orange and stone fruit flavours on the palate. Great acidity for fruit desserts, chocolate biscotti and blue-veined cheeses. - Community Wine Reviews

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