#WineWednesday – 2006 Vidal Icewine

By on January 29, 2014

2006 Vidal Icewine, De Sousa

Niagara Peninsula

This wintery elixir was undoubtedly one of my favourites tasted throughout the recent Icewine Festival gala and weekend; rich and luscious with its sweetness remarkably well balanced by firm acidity; smells and tastes like orange – kumquat – quince marmalade with underlying notes of green tea leaf and dried chamomile flower; the long – lasting finish is savoury and on the dry note, reminding me of an orange Muscat I have tasted not long ago; exotic, surely; and wait, its regular price is $39.95, but currently on sale for an amazing deal of only $17.95 (until the only few cases of supply left lasts); available from the winery in Beamsville; a beautiful accompaniment with foie gras – foie gras terrine, or fruit flans, on its own, or a splash of it added to your sparkling wine and vodka respectively.
