About this product
Inniskillin crafts premium Icewines in Canada's two primary wine regions, Ontario's Niagara Peninsula and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia . Though geographically far apart, both regions have the essential climatic conditions for Icewine production: warm summers to ripen the grapes and cold winters to provide the essential natural freezing. Austrian-born and monastically educated, Karl J. Kaiser, and native Canadian Donald J.P. Ziraldo, a decendant of a family of winegrowers in Northern Italy, founded Innisklillin Wines on July 31, 1975, obtaining the first winery license granted in the province of Ontario since 1929. Located in Niagara-on-the-Lake at the historic Brae Burn Estate, Inniskillin was founded upon and is dedicated to the principle of producing outstanding wines from vinifera wine grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula. Karl and Donald tirelessly tested the new ground of Niagara, grafting old-world wisdom in the new-world terroir. Inniskillin rocketed to international notoriety when its pioneering 1989 Vidal Icewine was awarded the Grand Prix d'Honneur at Vinexpo 1991, and drew worldwide attention to Canada's burgeoning wine industry.
Amazing depth of colour and outstanding red berry flavors, particularly strawberry, lend this red Icewine to pair well with chocolate or chocolate mousse and red fruit based desserts or simply strawberries and cream! - Winemaker Notes
