A bit sweet, which I like. Smooth finish. I hate that nasty aftertaste common to so many white wines. — 9 months ago

Love it. Crisp fresh & citrusy. An amazing Canadian Niagara white. Can’t go wrong. It’s a little pricey @ $14 but it’s on on sale sometimes. — 8 months ago

Happy International #RieslingDay to all my fellow Riesling fans 🥂
Mr. Spittoon and I decided to delve into the cellar and we pulled out this @inniskillinwines 2017 Icewine Riesling from the Okanagan Valley in Canada 🇨🇦
My brother and sister-in-law gave this to us in 2019 after their visit to Canada (which is the worlds largest ice wine producer!).
What is Icewine 🧊🥂?
It’s not wine you add ice too 😯
But it is wine which is made from frozen grapes 🍇. The grapes naturally freeze on the vines and are picked when the temperature drops below -9 degrees Celsius 🥶
Not much liquid comes out of the grapes when they are pressed. So what comes out is super concentrated and full of luxurious flavour 🤤
The natural high acidity in Riesling grapes means the variety is perfect for Icewine production 🙌
I’m not a big sweet wine drinker but when they have that perfect balance of sweetness and acidity, they are pure magic in the mouth 👌
And this Riesling Icewine was exactly that! From its beautiful golden amber colour to the mouthwatering aromas of juicy oranges, Manuka honey and stone fruits. The flavours flow through to the palate and it’s a true pleasure to drink with its lovely acidity. We matched it with cheese, prosciutto and crackers - which were the perfect compliment 👌
