Enter the magical world the domain of Inniskillin Ice wines!
The vintage of varietal Cabernet Franc:
This wine develops aromas of Strawberry and rhubarb. He will reveal all its exceptional flavours in accompaniment of cooked fruit or strawberries with cream fresh. His exotic taste will be more particularly highlighted in the presence of hazelnut or chocolate. It takes all the great expertise of Inniskillin to produce such quality from Cabernet Franc ice wine!
But how is developed a Canadian ice wine?
He is to leave the grapes on the vines until January. The freezing and thawing during this period winter desydratent ripe grapes. This process concentrates the sugars, acids and extracts of grape, which intensifies the flavours and gives a great complexity. The harvest is then picked by hand, grain by grain, ideally at a temperature-° C to-° C (generally overnight). The grapes are then pressed under extreme cold and frozen remaining water, only a few drops of sweet concentrated juice are retrieved.
This process also explains the rarity of this wine compared to a traditional harvest: we get about 50%of beverage. Niagara Peninsula is a region particularly known for its microclimate that allows the production of exceptional wines of ice.
