Cabernet Franc Icewine

2017 | $69.95

Winemaking Notes:

World’s First Ripasso Style Icewine. Once the Icewine grapes were picked and pressed, the juice was added to a tank that contained the skins of another style of Cabernet Franc sweet wine that we had just produced. The resulting product is an Icewine with lots of extra flavor and tannin due to the fermentation on the skins. This adds a layer of complexity to the wine that is sure to please your palate.

Appearance:

Bright Garnet.

Nose:

Complex aromas of maraschino cherries, black raspberries, orange zest, quince, and elder flowers.

Taste:

Rich and sweet with a soft mouthfeel, expressing flavours of cherries, strawberries, black raspberries, figs, and salted caramel.

Finish:

Long and pleasant.
