Icewine is a rarity in the wine world, as only a few regions are lucky enough to experience the conditions required to produce it. Even rarer are red Icewines. This popular example is made by one of Ontario's most important winemaking families and is from one of Ontario's most historically significant varieties, Cabernet Franc. Look for bright, lifted red fruit tones - think strawberry, raspberry and cranberry - with refreshing acidity. This will be ideal with a fruity dessert.
Tasting Note: You'll find plenty to like in this estate-grown, cabernet franc icewine, especially the delicious flavours and deft balance. Aromas of spice-infused strawberry and raspberry abound before unleashing an unctuous river of palate-bathing flavour with strawberry/rhubarb pie and candied cherry to the fore. It cleans up on the finish and aftertaste laced with tangy blood orange and racy pie cherry. Pour with fruit and dark chocolate flan. Score - 93. (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Nov. 20, 2017)
