Canada — Ontario • $119.2 • 93/100

Wow, traditional method sparkling icewine is a pretty rarified genre, and this is a stunning example. The wine is medium-depth pink with an orange tinge. Fragrant apple blossoms herald both ripe and baked notes of strawberries and cherries, with an earthy undertone. The wine is very sweet, with a honeyed richness and a hint of sponge toffee, but the vivid acidity and lightly foamy bubbles give balance and firmness to the palate. Pricy to be sure, but very unique. • Tasted 2017-03-24 • LCBO id#0 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
