Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer INNISKILLIN
Not presented at the press preview in the LCBO lab. Forward medium yellow colour. Sweet, orange marmalade nose with some spicy, caramel notes and somewhat distracting hints of vinyl shower curtain. Better on the palate. Sweet, medium bodied, quite well structured, harmonious, spicy, ripe lemon-apricot-Seville orange marmalade flavours with a lingering, ripe apple-caramel-tinged finish. This Vintages Essential has 10.5% alcohol and 256 g/L residual sugar (280 g/L residual sugar at the SAQ). Unfortunately, no information is available on the Inniskillin website. CSPC 388306

The 1989 vintage of this Icewine won the Grand Prix d'Honneur at Vinexpo and put Canada on the global wine map, and the wine continues to impress: the 2015 vintage took home a Gold Medal at the 2017 Wine Awards of Canada. Delicious creamy peach, candied citrus peel and honey flavours. Delectable with raspberry mousse or an assertive cheese such as Gruyère. Price $ 50.95
