Creekside Vidal Icewine 2015

Canada, Ontario
93 WA

“What makes Icewine so special” you may ask? It’s the risk that a farmer takes when they decide to hang their precious grapes for an indeterminately long time outside, butt-naked and unprotected from the winter elements. It’s the passionate people that go out into freezing cold winter’s night to pick these grapes and then immediately press them to extract what equates to one drop of sweet luscious juice from each grape. It’s the winemakers that patiently and carefully baby the ferment and coax it along to find the perfect balance between sweetness, alcohol and acidity. And ultimately, it’s YOU who appreciate and enjoy the hedonistic experience of drinking an Icewine and savouring all the intensely interesting flavours and luscious texture that it brings to your palate.

Tasting notes

Vidal’s typically lush expression is embodied in this voluptuous Icewine. Conversely, it exhibits far more freshness and definition than one would expect resulting in balance and tension. Notes of apricot, fresh peach and honey and almond linger on the finish of considerable length. Highly memorable.

Pairing

Pair alongside fruit-driven desserts, cheesecake, ice cream and with soft cheeses like Brie and pungent cheeses such as Stilton.

Cellaring

Enjoy through 2030

Producer Description

Creekside Estate Winery opened in 1997 in small-town Jordan, Ontario.  The Winery is run by a passionate (some say fanatical) group of industry veterans who have decades of experience in their respective fields. The team of self-described cork dorks love what they do, and have fun doing it. 

Early on the darlings of the Creekside portfolio were, like the people who created them, a little outside of the mainstream fold; Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah are the signature wines.  Creekside has also developed a cult following for its Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blend and Ontario’s award winning Broken Press Syrah.

Despite being considered viticulturally off-kilter for the region these 2 grapes showed promise and the early successes spurred further investment in the vineyard and cellar.
