Riesling Icewine 2017 Half Bottle 375ml
Peller Estates’ Icewines are some of the most coveted sweet wines on the planet. Their vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula are blessed with the perfect conditions for crafting this style – a labour of love that yields a tiny drop of intense juice per grape. The grapes are naturally frozen, then handpicked in the dead of night in the freezing Canadian winter, and finally pressed while still frozen. The wines can be sipped chilled as an aperitif, with dessert or alongside salty snacks, cheese, pâté or foie gras. The adventurous may also consider using them in cocktails, especially as an alternative to Vermouth in a Martini.
The Riesling Icewine manages to be intensely rich, but with a sorbet-like freshness. A particularly regal expression of this noble grape, it’s brimming with orange, tangerine, nectarine, golden raspberry, crisp green apple, floral honey, lemon sherbet and quince jelly. It makes a fabulous match for lemon drizzle cake, crème brûlée, apple strudel, poached pear with vanilla ice cream and apple pie with custard, not to mention an extensive cheeseboard.
In 1927, Andrew Peller travelled from Hungary – home to some of the world’s finest dessert wines – to Nova Scotia in Canada with just five dollars to his name. Exploring the entire country, he planted his first vineyards in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. This entrepreneurial young man then opened wineries in British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia and began to expand his empire. His descendants have been making wine ever since. They founded Peller Estates in his honour in 1969. Based in Ontario, this multi-award-winning, family-run Canadian winery has become legendary, particularly for its exceptional dessert wines.£13.6 per 100.00ml
