In the glass, rich golden colour with a straw hue. On the nose, a highly expressive bouquet of tangerine, apple pie, citrus oil, slate and honey. On the palate, concentrated flavors of apricot, preserved lemon unfold into a complex and focused finish full of life and energy.
The conditions close to the Bay of Fundy create an icewine that is superbly balanced and magnificently long-lived, with brilliant acidity and bright aromatic flavours.
Waiting and watching for the perfect moment, the Benjamin Bridge icewine harvest begins in early winter, after temperatures have dipped to -10°C. With the Vidal grapes evenly frozen they are handpicked from the vines and gently pressed to extract their precious juice. Then, after careful ageing, the icewine is ready.
Perfect on its own or as an accompaniment to savoury pâtés, pungent cheeses and lightly sweet desserts such as fruit tarts, cheesecakes and shortbreads. Serve at room temperature or lightly chilled.
