RIESLING ICEWINE 2017 VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer INNISKILLIN
Bright light yellow colour. Intense, complex, very sweet, ripe apple puree nose with some caramel notes. Extremely sweet, medium-bodied, well structured, spicy, intense, ripe apple purée flavours with a lingering, caramel and Seville orange marmalade tinged finish. This 100% Riesling has 9.2% alcohol, 245 g/L residual sugar. Unfortunately, Inniskillin has not updated the 2017 website spec sheet which links to the old 2014 tech sheet. Believe it or not, the SAQ sells this for just $72.00 (#10296511). TONY ASPLER / 93-points / TRY - Bright old gold colour; a bouquet of mango and honey; medium to full-bodied, sweet, candy-apple flavour with balancing acidity and an engaging touch of bitterness on the finish to add extra complexity.
