Founded by Donald Ziraldo and Karl Kaiser in 1975, Inniskillin is Canada's pioneering icewine producer, bringing the Niagara Peninsula global attention. Today, they remain masters of this unmistakably Canadian delicacy. While the Riesling icewines may be the most refined and complex, and the red Cabernet Franc renditions the most flamboyant (especially in its sparkling form), there's something about the icewines made from Vidal, a hybrid variety, that is so gratifyingly pleasurable. Juicy, and drippingly palate-coating, the wine oozes lush, ripe flavors of orange peel, mango, bruised peach and apricot, nuanced by a pollenous, floral quality. — 2 years ago

Had it April 2010.
Straw yellow colour.
Toasty nose, lanolin, also toasted corn or rice , like some of those snacks. Hints of honey. Kaiser pear, passion fruit, basil, gunpowder, sulphur, lime, green apple.
Mouth still full of freshness, chalky, macadamia biscuits, peanut butter, wax and all there was in scents is there in your palate. Somehow it reminds you of a Mersault, but it has never touched any wood. Passion fruit drives the game, it is long and enjoyable. Many years ahead, but how better it can get? It opens even more with notes of yeast like an old champagne.
