From one of the top names in Canadian winemaking, this exquisite icewine combines the class of Sauternes, the fruitiness of an Aussie ‘sticky’ and the finesse of its great German counterparts. A must try for all fans of truly great dessert wine.
"Nectar! This was such a delight. Super sweet and intense. Everything you want from an Ice Wine"
Since the Pillitteri estate opened in 1993, they’ve won over a 1000 international awards. In particular, they’ve won Golds for their Icewines, including their first vintage, 1988. The family are of Sicilian origin – Gary and his dad came to Canada in 1948 and, once settled, the rest of the clan followed. Gary married another Sicilian, raising the family in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Starting as fruit farmers, in 1988 they experimented with making wine. Today they are undoubtedly the most successful in the region. This precious icewine uses Canada’s most important grape, Vidal. Only when temperatures reach -8° can they harvest the frozen berries. The tiny amount of juice is amazingly sweet, with searing freshness too. Ideal in this dessert wine!
