Luscious. Opulent. Unique. This Icewine is a classic. Nuances of lifted strawberry and cedar with a confectionary tone allude to the succulent palate that follows. Subtle wild raspberry notes migrate from nose to the palate accompanied by an array of sun warmed berries. The influence of oak is further revealed with vanilla and cedar notes. The lengthy finish is berry filled and transitioning.

2016 was a hot dry year perfect for red wine production. The light crop, lack of precipitation and late harvest allowed for full flavoured Cabernet franc grapes to enter the winter season. Since the grapes were excessively ripe, the berries were tightly adhered to the pedicle permitting hand harvesting only. On a cold January winter night at -11C, the grapes were hand harvested.
A small amount of juice resulted due to dehydration on the vine. After immediate pressing, the juice was fermented with selected yeast which completed the ferment on its own. It was then aged 8 months on lees in a recoopered French oak barrel. After sterile fermentation, it was hand bottled. Limited production of 62 cases created.
