2015 Vidal Icewine/375ml
Great wines are all about balance, as this Organic Icewine illustrates. The Vidal grapes ripened through the summer of 2015, then were frozen on the vine. Pressed below -8 degrees C, the resulting juice carries concentrated flavour, acidity and sugar. After a long, cool fermentation, this bright, luscious wine pairs well with savoury [blue cheese, foie gras] and sweet creations.

95 Points - Michael Godel - Wine Align
"The most unusually brick red-orange hue makes this vidal Icewine a one-of-a-kind wonder and the best news of all is how complex the wine is to follow suit. Yes the curiosity factor runs high but so do the gamut of aromatics and flavours. Coffee, toffee, crème brûlée, apricot, guava and strangely enough the spongey filling of a Crunchie Bar. What a childhood memory that digs up. Acids are strong, relevant and still humming so the sugars are carried along with great companionship. Benchmark vidal usage and to no surprise. Ann Sperling’s work with varietal orange wine combined with her knowledge of Icewine make for a union divine. Drink 2019-2025."
