The Rusty Shed Twenty Mile Bench VQA Chardonnay 2008

2008 vintage, open March 2021, OMG this is incredible. The viscosity and balance is off the charts. The typical fruit is now gone, but the vanilla and texture is near perfect. — 13 days ago

Süssreserve Niagara Escarpment VQA Riesling 2018

Pale gold. Honey and rubber on the nose. Nice balance of sweetness and acidity. 🍏 Med body. Kind of a nubie with whites and realize that Rieslings tend to be rather aromatic anyway but lots going on here which is fun. — 4 days ago

Pearl Morissette

Fralala Cabernet Franc Rosé 2019

This is a lovely wine with a lot going on. Berry and pepper on the palette and a lovely floral nose. Not really my cup of tea, but very well rendered Cab Franc rose. — 25 days ago

Niagara Peninsula VQA Cabernet Franc 2018

Opened this a few days ago and then caught it this evening, just before it fell off. Excellent Ontario table wine. Medium everything: held up to steak, didn't overpower chicken. — 6 days ago

Niagara Peninsula Icewine Riesling 2017

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 👌

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. #Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
