The old image of Icewine as a sweet dessert wine is quickly becoming a thing of the past. For food and wine lovers who like to experiment with taste experiences, the range of Icewine varietals provide a elegant mix of refreshing acidity and complex sweet aromatics. Unlike table wines, Icewine is ready to enjoy once it is bottled and it changes extremely slowly over time. A high quality Icewine made from grapes with a low pH, high acid and moderate alcohol level stored in a cellar or cool temperature of 10 to 13 degrees Celsius will maintain its characteristics for 50 years!

Vidal Blanc is the thoroughbred of the Icewine category. The Vidal Blanc grape remains hardy during the freezing cold of winter and is disease resistant and the highest quality Vidal Blanc Icewine has complex pitted fruit flavours of apricot, peach, nectarine and plum with refreshing acidity that arrests any cloying sweetness in the lingering taste. A good Vidal Icewine delivers a great bang for your buck, delivering intense flavours that unfold in your mouth and end with a crisp mouth feel. The early fruit flavour delivery is best paired with high fat or spicy foods that deliver their aromatics at the mid point of eating and then ride the crest of the caramelized notes in Icewine to provide a continuous movement of dancing flavours that slowly fade into a clean crispness.

“Food pairing involves both personal preference and a blending of character notes to achieve both balance and complexity,” says Karen King, a sensory expert who has conducted food and wine research internationally for over 25 years. “When you combine a complex sweet, acidic product like Vidal Icewine with foods, the trick is to pair it with textural and flavour components that will extend the taste experience and create harmony in your mouth.”

To enjoy Vidal Blanc Icewine, chill it and then first taste it on its own and notice the flavours you can detect. Then taste it again with an aged cheese. Notice the fine details of flavours and textures as well as the overall synergy with the cheese. Vidal Blanc Icewine will fill the gaps of the aged cheese delivery to create a long lasting “dance of flavours”.
Greet your guests with Vidal Blanc Icewine when they visit your home and make a toast to the land. Its time for this truly Canadian signature product to enjoy the fame it deserves.
