10 Peller Estate Ice Wine
This Ice Wine is made on the Niagara Peninsula in Canada which is on the same latitude as some very warm places, Rioja in Spain for example, this means that it has the warm summers for growing grapes but the frosty winters to produce rare ice wine. The grapes are left on the vines to concentrate the flavours and sugars. They are then harvested frozen during the first frost (which runs the risk of the grapes rotting prior to this). The juice is pressed free of the ice and made into this stunning sweet wine.
Pineapple and stone fruits on the nose with an underlying floral element of orange blossom. The palate is honeyed with additional notes of sherbet lemon and a little spice from the oak.
The aroma was breathtaking. You could literally pick out floral fragrant, from elderflower, jasmine to rose. There is a strong fruity aroma as well from apricots, necatarine and subtle almonds. The palate is rich. The texture is concerntrated and deep. We took turns blurting out what our tongues could taste, includes peach, dark honey, apricot, lemon zest, honey dew melon, figs, pineapples, vanilla and plum.
