Tasting Notes

We pick our Icewine at -10°C or colder to make sure every ounce of water left in the grapes is completely frozen. We don’t want to dilute this incredible wine in any way. Once in the Harvest Room we press the frozen bunches of grapes at up to 100 psi just to extract a few trickles of the thick and sweet juice. Because the juice is so cold and sweet we have to use aggressive yeast to start and maintain fermentation, which can take several months. The wine is sweet but is finely balanced with fruit flavours and a strong backbone of acidity. Riesling is one of the great white grape varieties with excellent aging potential. This wine is a terrific example. - Winemaker's notes

The Producer

Château Des Charmes

The impressive entrance to Château des Charmes Winery (pictured below) with the formal gardens and the classic façade are reminiscent of an ancient French estate. Hardly surprising, as Château des Charmes has a long history of winemaking, dating back seven generations to Alsace.

Founded by industry visionary Paul Bosc, this family estate winery is set among 35-hectares of pristine vines in the St. David’s Bench. By the early 1970s, Paul was crafting Ontario wines that surprised many in the wine world. In 1978, he established Château des Charmes as a 60-acre estate winery and planted the first commercial Canadian vineyard growing only vitis vinifera grapes….this is truly Canadian wine history in the making.
