Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas and flavours of apricot, peach blossom, ripe pineapple and baked apple pie lead to a juicy, ripe fruit finish.
Vineyard Notes
A cool, wet March and first half of April brought concern for a late bud break and a difficult start to the growing season. However, towards the end of April the weather changed dramatically, and temperatures rose to well above seasonal averages, accelerating bud break to close to historical norms. June and July were good growing months and August brought smoke from the many fires to the northwest. Towards the end of the month, the skies cleared. Early September was cool – ideal for the whites and Pinot Noir, but not for the bigger reds. Luckily, we saw an October to remember - very sunny and dry, hitting daytime temperatures of 16°- 17C° and nighttime temperatures just above the freezing mark, allowing for an extended hang time and a great conclusion to another fine Okanagan vintage!
Production Notes
We harvested on February 10, 2021 at -11°C and this small window was the best opportunity all year for harvest. We achieved 41.5 brix at the press (very good quality). The fermentation was clean and wonderfully aromatic. We stopped the ferment at just over 8% alcohol to achieve a wonderfully balanced wine.
Winemaker Notes
Harvested from Inkameep Vineyard’s highly prized 30-year-old Riesling block–pure and focused, this inviting Icewine displays a harmonious layering of tropical fruits, baked apple, sweet citrus and apricot. The defined mid palate progresses into a mouthwatering, powerful finish that is inspired by well-integrated acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
As an aperitif with cheese or salty hors d'ouevres. Also enjoyed as a dessert with fresh fruits, blue cheese, nuts or an unsweetened pear tart.
Other Notes
