Icewine from Canada is a sweet wine from naturally frozen Cabernet Franc grapes that are pressed frozen to release only one drop of pure extract from each grape
Tasting Note: This sweet icewine from Canada is fragrant with rhubarb, raspberry, blackberries and herbs, while the acidic flavours of redcurrants and pomegranates prevents the considerable sweetness from becoming overpowering.
Food Matching: Enjoy during a meal, with paté or with foie gras for a mouth sensation. A wonderful companion to spicy Asian cuisine. Try with black olive tapenade on crusty baguette. Enjoy after a meal, with fruit based desserts of cherries, raspberries and strawberries or dark chocolate. Also enjoy with soft, blue veined cheeses, blueberry tarts, plum cobbler or dark chocolate dipped strawberries.
Vinification: Naturally frozen Cabernet Franc grapes are hand harvested at -10°C. Pressed frozen, releasing only one drop of pure extract from each grape. Fermentation is performed at a cool temperature to retain fruit concentration (a short skin contact for colour and complexity), then 70% of the wine is aged in stainless steel
