Inniskillin Sparkling Cabernet Franc Icewine 2017

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaSparkling icewine is uniquely designed for dancing on the palate, lightening what is intrinsically a rich wine. In the case of cabernet franc, it also helps to lift its low acid frame, pushing the sugar up, and giving it life. I love the richness, apple butter, caramel, powerful dark berry flavours and gentle acidity that comes with just a prickle of fizz. It's dessert in a glass. The process of sparkling an icewine is done during the fermentation, halfway through, when it’s moved to a pressurized tank to take on a hit of carbon dioxide. The result is almost magical, and 100 percent Canadian.Tasted: 01 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 119.95 375 winery direct, Great Estates of Niagara Producer: Inniskillin NiagaraDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
