Fresh aromatics of ripe tropical fruit dominate, while the effervescence in this unique style offers a dry sensation to the flavours of mango, peach and lemon.

Winery information

Inniskillin

Inniskillin is now synonymous with top quality Icewine and consistently sets the bar much higher than its competitors. This is underlined by the numerous awards that they have won. Inniskillin harvests at a higher brix level than the minimum set by the VQA (Vintners Quality Alliance in Ontario) and their wines have a higher level of residual sugar. This gives richer, more intense wines that merit their higher price.

Inniskillin was founded in 1975 by Austrian chemist Karl Kaiser and Italian-Canadian agriculture graduate Donald Ziraldo, who worked tirelessly to introduce better vines and superior winemaking techniques to Niagara. In 1984, to make the most of the extreme Canadian winter, Kaiser produced his first Icewine

Vinification notes

Having been harvested at an average temperature of -10 degrees Celsius, the grapes were pressed immediately. The resulting juice was an ideal 37.7 brix for a sparkling Icewine. Inoculated with a very specific strain of yeast, the juice was allowed to ferment under pressure in a charmat tank at an average temperature of 17 degrees Celsius until it reached an alcohol level of 9.5%.
