Wine Profile
Tasting Notes

Exotic fruits, peaches, oranges and honey dominate the nose of this unique icewine. The palate continues with citrus, mango, lychee and pineapple balanced by a crisp acidity and lively effervescence. An Inniskillin classic!

Vineyard Notes
A slow start to the growing season did not hold the 2018 vintage back. Cool temperatures in April quickly shifted to very warm day in May and the vines took off. The following months, through the summer continued to be perfectly ideal for grape growing, with plenty of hot, dry, sunny days. The above average temperatures did not change much approaching harvest season, in fact they were coupled with humidity and rain forcing an early start to picking, with the first grapes arriving at the winery Aug 30th. We experienced some Botrytis in the Viognier blocks but managed to avoid rot elsewhere. Luckily there were enough dry days in the following months that all varieties were brought in by early November at optimal quality.
Production Notes
The grapes for this Icewine were harvested at an average temperature of -10°C. Pressed immediately upon their arrival at the winery, the resulting juice was an ideal 37.7 brix for a sparkling Icewine. Inoculated with a very specific strain of yeast, the juice was allowed to ferment under pressure in a charmat tank at an average temperature of 17°C until it reached an alcohol of 9.5%.
Winemaker Notes
Bright aromas and flavours of fresh tropical fruits dominate the nose and palate. This unique styled Icewine is overflowing with notes of ripe peach, candied lemon, juicy pineapple and lychee, and is balanced by the dry sensation brought forth by the effervescence. The juicy and concentrated flavours dance on your palate, through to an extended, fruit filled finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Tuna tartar with fresh chili and tempura blue crab with mango and cucumber salsa. Rich cheeses from brie to blue. Fresh fruit desserts and great with crème brulee.

One of the best ice wines I've ever tasted. Not overpowering sweet, just right

Iconic Canadian Icewine producer, Inniskillin, is world-renowned for their luxurious Icewines, and their sparkling Vidal Icewine is completely next level, a textural experience like no other! Their rich and refreshing Vidal Icewine is further enhanced by endless microbubbles producing arguably the most refreshing dessert wine on the planet. Honey, candied pears, stone fruit, and baking spice on the nose and palate, this sparkling Icewine is loaded with decadent flavours that complement any dessert imaginable from honey-lavender crème brûlée to vanilla mousse chocolate cake or your favourite take-out, whether that be sweet, spicy and crispy General Tso's chicken or a foie gras poutine - you'll enjoy them all with this incredibly food-friendly wine. Highly recommended. Tasted December 2020. 96 points. Matt Steeves -

Inniskillin - originator of iconic ice-wine in Niagara. The history of this winery and a consistent top producer of award winning ice-wines. The peach, apricot flavours and bold sweetness plus the added sparkling element to this ice-wine make a favourite. Having grown up in Niagara and seen the expansion of the region, do not miss a visit to Inniskillin, where it all began. Visited yesterday and it was a pleasure.
