Dessert Wines

Icewine

2011 Vidal Icewine

Grown at Warner Vineyards, the grapes for this Icewine were picked on January 5th, 2012, when the temperature dipped to -12°C. The late harvest this season made for wonderful aromatics, with notes of apricot, honey, citrus and spice. The long fermentation created a perfectly balanced wine, with fresh acidity and enticing sweetness lingering well into the finish.

 

Style: Sweet

Price: $30 (tax incl.)


Vin de Paille

2012 Vin de Paille

Picked late in the season, the Chardonnay grapes for our Vin de Paille (French for “straw wine”) were dried and concentrated in our barn and cellar for two months before pressing. The wine fermented and was aged in neutral oak barrels for 24 months before bottling.

Aromas of honey, peach, and dried fruits give way to a rich and full palate, balanced by acidity and alcohol. A different style of dessert wine, try our Vin de Paille with fruit crumbles, salty cheese plates, or on its own after a meal.

Price: $35 (tax incl.)
