It all began in 1927, when Andrew Peller first arrived in Canada from Hungary. Having owned a series of successful businesses, he wanted to finally pursue his dream. He envisioned a day when Canadians, like Europeans, would come to appreciate premium-quality wines and enjoy sharing them with family and friends. The family proudly carries on Andrew's tradition of crafting wine with an uncommon commitment to quality.
Naturally frozen Vidal grapes are hand harvested from Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyards at -10°C. Grapes are pressed frozen, releasing only one drop of pure extract from each grape. Fermentation is performed at a cool temperature of 15ºC to preserve pure fruit expression and freshness, then aged in stainless steel.
An exceptionally well-balanced Icewine exhibiting sophistication and elegance. The clean fruit flavours of peach, pear juice, tangerine and a drizzle of honey excite the palate. Lemon drops, apricot and candied citrus peel linger through on the finish. Best enjoyed through 2018.
