2017 13 Below Zero

A blend of 55% Riesling with 45% Vidal Icewine

$24.95

TASTING NOTES

Classic Vidal Icewine aromatics jump from the glass with a ripe nose of apricot, wildflowers and honey. On the palate it is medium sweet from the Icewine but balance with the acid structure from the Riesling. In addition to the notes of apricot and honey, there is some savory herbal notes leading to a sweet but cleansing finish.

On the savoury side, this wine is an ideal pairing for foie gras, creamy blue cheeses or well-aged Cheddar. On the sweet front, try crème brulée and light airy desserts such as apple charlotte, delicate NY cheesecakes, or fresh citrus fruit with sabayon.

In the 2017 vintage, the decision was made to blend 45% Vidal Icewine with 55% off-dry Riesling. The Icewine was selected for its clean and intense aromas and rich sweetness. The off-dry Riesling brought freshness and acid balance to the blend.
