This rich and concentrated Icewine boasts flavors of ripe peach and juicy tangerine with a touch of warm baking spice. The lively acidity adds the perfect balance to this delicious nectar, its smooth texture and solid structure lead to an extended fruit-filled finish. Pairs beautifully with blue cheese, pecan or apple pie, carrot cake and fruit salad.

In a sensational vintage for icewine, this wine clocks in at 252 g/L residual sugar. Rare, expensive and luxurious, it takes you on a deep dive into flavors of honey, maple sugar, brown sugar, rock candy, sweet citrus, orange, peach, butterscotch and caramel. Try it with pecan pie.

The 2017 Gold Vidal Icewine was fermented for about three weeks in new French oak and then aged for another four months in French oak. It comes in at 9.5% alcohol, 256 grams of residual sugar and 9.94 of total acidity with a pH of 3.6. The price references a half bottle. Why trade up from the regular Vidal? Well, they are quite different in style. It's more about the style than any qualitative difference. This has a fuller feel in the mouth. It is much denser. The wood is not noticeable as such, but it gives this a less unctuous texture and a little more character, cutting the relentless sugar hit a little. To be sure, the price paid for that gain is the loss of a little purity and freshness. It is still sexy and quite delicious, so don't worry about that too much. On the first day tasted, this was my favorite of the two Vidals. When they were retasted the next day, it was tossup. This seemed a bit more stolid, relatively speaking.
