Tasting Note: This sweet dessert wine is a hybrid cross between icewine and a vin de cure (drying method). The grapes are left on the arms of the vines and then cut, allowing them to desiccate in the netting for a while before they freeze and are harvested. It becomes a sort of dried AND frozen berry before being pressed and is fermented in 60L French oak casks. I don't know of anyone else doing this in Niagara. It's perfectly mature now with a nose of wild honey, marmalade, candied citrus, peach, dried apricot and roasted almonds. It is thick, unctuous and luxurious on the palate with spiced wild honeycomb, compoted peach, apricot, caramel and toffee/nutty notes. Almost a French toast taste on the finish. A highly unique style of sweet wine with a healthy dose of 15.1 alc. Score - 91. (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Aug. 30, 2015)
