Description

Lakeview Cellars Cabernet Franc Icewine 2017

Lakeview Cellars Cabernet Franc Icewine has a rich aromatic nose of strawberry and cranberry fruit. The palate is deeper with more complex flavours of pepper that balances the sweetness. 

 

100% Cabernet Franc.¬†The grapes for lakeview wines come from the best vineyards in the Niagara region and benefit from the coastal breezes of Lake Ontario. The wines all bear the ‚ÄúVQA Niagara Peninsula‚ÄĚ seal. VQA stands for ‚ÄúVintners Quality Alliance‚ÄĚ, an appellation and regulation system for original Canadian wines that guarantees quality and authenticity.

Harvesting the frozen Cabernet France grapes in early December when temperatures fell between -10 and -13. After settling the juice in stainless steel tanks, cool fermentation was completed in late February when the wine was placed outdoors to stop fermentation and complete a natural cold stabilisation.
