    Château Des Charmes

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 375 ml

    Foie gras, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    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

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 375 ml


    "The sheer intensity of this icewine is almost beyond description. Dense fruit flavours of Meyer lemon and tangerine gelato shine on the palate. The sweetness is concentrated, with an impression of maple sugar and cotton candy, all upon a foundation of viscous acidity. One half size bottle will happily serve four to six sweet tooths."

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "This multi-source cuvée displays its usual knack for delivering value, with brightly fresh lemon and apple allied to a flatteringly waxy texture and underlain by firm slate, just as its name (“firm as a rock”) suggests. This finishes with clarity, vibrancy and refreshment, not to mention impressive sheer penetration. While the label says 12% alcohol, the wine projects a fine sense of lift."

    "That flesh, that Kabinett flesh, fills the CSV in every crevice. In 2013 the residual sugar number lies between 15 and 16 g/L, and though the crop was bigger, it was still picked later than in 2012. The result is formidable corporeal concentration, consistency of house style and perhaps the only '13 Niagara Riesling to imitate, perpetuate and extrapolate on the vintage that came before. This Cave Spring concentrates fruit and Escarpment into a powerful Riesling, streaming like charged particles through changing expressions. A lingering ascension hovers as it rises, until it slowly fades into the welkin, like a balloon that languidly gets lost into the blinding blue of a midday sky. Drink 2017-2025."

    Riesling was personally selected by winemakers Herbert Konzelmann and Eric Pearson to showcase and celebrate Konzelmann’s 30th Anniversary of winemaking excellence in Canada. This small batch Riesling is a blend of wine aged in acacia wood barrels and stainless steel tanks, giving it a rich complexity while still maintaining a crisp acidity. Notes of apple, lemon and lime zest are rounded out by a smooth creamy finish.

    2 x 375 ml


    On the nose, classic Bartlett pear and lemon meringue aromas emerge overtop notes of candied orange peel,golden raisins and allspice. The palate is sweet and full in body yet not cloying, echoing in flavour the aromas of the nose along with notes of black tea, honeycomb and brown sugar. Crisply structured throughout, the wine's brilliant acidity provides a clean, elegant finish reminiscent of orange marmelade and crème brûlée. A vibrantly aromatic wine, with notes of petrol, marmalade, citrus and flowers. It's rich and honeyed, with a lightly smoky, lingering finish.

Grown primarily in a few choice areas of the Rhine in Germany, the origins of the Riesling grape remain a point of conjecture among wine enthusiasts. One school of thought holds that the increase in the use of this grape was due to the monks at the Cistercian monastery at Eberbach. The legend goes that the monks determined that the red grapes currently cultivated on their lands could not compete with those grown in France. To that end, they ordered the vines removed and replaced with white grape varieties. The Riesling is often cited as the white grape chosen for the new plantings. There are documents tracing the origin of the Riesling and the use in wine to the 15th century. In the log maintained by Count Katzenelnbogen at Ruesselsheim, an entry for 13 March 1435 confirms the receipt of six vines of Riesling. Today, the grape is cultivated in a number of countries around the world. Along with Germany, the grapes are found in Canada, the USA, Australia, and Austria.
