Vineyard Notes
Early Spring temperatures brought a rapid start to the 2016 growing season. Mid to late Spring saw temperatures cool off, bringing in a great deal of rain. This hampered berry development slightly but the warm summer days followed by cool summer nights more than made up for it. This temperature fluctuation allows sugar to develop during the day, with acidity that develops at night, resulting in whites with excellent fruit flavours and bright acidity. Red wine varietals benefitted from an early growing season as well, which allowed them to ripen on the vine for much longer than a typical harvest. The cooler fall weather helped the grapes retain moisture which resulted in a more subtle fruit profile with supple, smooth tannins.
Production Notes
The 2014 Icewine harvest was November 11-12th 2014 with ideal temperatures of -10C to -12C. The grapes were machine harvested in the early hours of morning and the frozen grapes were basket pressed. Fermentation was carried out by a select yeast, known to enhance varietal character.
Food Pairing Notes
White chocolate cream cake, BBQ peaches, spicy almonds, blue cheese, and select hard cheeses.
