Wine Description:
Cave Spring Riesling Icewine is a premium dessert wine produced by Cave Spring Cellars, a renowned winery located in the Niagara Peninsula wine region of Ontario, Canada. The wine is made from Riesling grapes grown in the winery's vineyards, which benefit from the region's unique microclimate and soil composition. The grapes are harvested at the peak of their ripeness, frozen on the vine, and then handpicked in the dead of winter to produce a concentrated and luscious wine. The winemaking process involves slow fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wine's delicate aromas and flavors. The resulting wine is a rich and complex dessert wine with notes of honey, apricot, and citrus, balanced by a refreshing acidity. Cave Spring Riesling Icewine is a perfect choice for special occasions or as a gift for wine lovers. Read more

Wine Expert Note:

The Wine Enthusiast gave this wine 96/100, and writes the following: "Sip this brilliant ice wine to know how Winnie the Pooh feels when he discovers a new pot of honey. Imagine raw honeycomb, apricots, ginger marmalade, Meyer lemons and crisp yellow apples rolled into a pleasing ball. This ice wine's puckering acidity makes this something special." Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
