Grape(s): Cabernet Franc
Localization: Ontario, Canada
Tasting Notes: This decadent Icewine shows an abundance of rhubarb, and raspberry aromatics, with plenty of flavours of cherry, and strawberries and cream. This wine shows a beautiful balance of richness and acidity.
95 Points Wine Enthusiast: Cabernet Franc, both still and sweet, is a rising star in eastern Canada. As an ice wine it's rare and distinctive, aromatic and focused. Honey, molasses, caramel, bubble tea, sweet tobacco, candied apricot, blueberry and blackberry jam mark the dizzying mix of flavors. There's enough tannin to cut through, and this very special wine makes a splendid dessert all by itself. Editors' Choice
