Peller Icewine Riesling, an absolute mist with fruit based desserts.
Tasting Note: Luscious dessert wine, exhaling yellow plum and star fruit, then filling the mouth with golden pineapple and candied lemon.
Food Matching: Best enjoyed when served chilled at 8 – 10°C. Peller Riesling Icewine is a wonderful accompaniment to food, complimenting dishes such as paté or with foie gras for a mouth sensation. Also a wonderful companion to salty appetizer or cheese (such as mild blue cheeses) and an absolute must with fruit based desserts!
Vineyard: Proximity to Lake Ontario allows for full ripening of grapes while retaining acidity. Total icewine vineyard covers some 250 hectares, planted North to South for maximum sunlight.
The grapes are naturally frozen and hand harvested at -10°C and pressed frozen, releasing only one drop of pure extract from each grape. The wine is aged 100% in stainless steel.
Acid Level: 12.5g/l
