Whistler 2018 Sauvignon Blanc VQA Icewine

Whistler 2018 Sauvignon Blanc VQA Icewine

SILVER ~ 2015 Okanagan Fall Wine Festival.
HONOURS ~ 2014 InterVin International Wine Awards

An exciting wine with intense expression of Sauvignon Blanc Varietal character: rich tropical fruit notes and zingy bright acid. Tropical guava, pineapple and gooseberry on the nose. Intense tropical fruit notes with bright lemon and grapefruit acid notes with delicate creamy notes on the palate. A smooth finish, with tropical sweetness balanced by a bright acidity. Luscious! 

The Sauvignon Blanc icewine is an exciting wine that shows the tightrope qualities of tropical sweetness and bright intense acidity. This delightful wine can be enjoyed alone, with fatty foods like pate, or cheese or paired with dark chocolate and desserts low in sweetness.

Production Notes
Our grapes are allowed to ripen fully in the heat of the hot desert summer and then left to naturally freeze on the vines until temperatures drop below -8°C. Often there is only a day or so to hand pick and press the frozen grapes, which are then skillfully vinted to produce our award winning Icewines. These grapes were harvested in November 2013 when a rare daytime cold snap came over the valley.
Winemaker Notes
We use only the finest Sauvignon Blanc grapes to produce the first 100% sauvignon blanc Icewine in Canada.
Food Pairing Notes
To be enjoyed on its own as a liquid dessert or as an accompaniment to desserts and cheeses. For a tropical feel pair with fresh sliced pineapple or for those with a sweet-tooth, try it with some 70% dark cacao chocolate.
