Cabernet Sauvignon Icewine 200

Cabernet Sauvignon Icewine (200ml) Wine Details
Price: $35.00 per bottle

Description: An intoxicating deep pink colour draws you into this bombshell of an Icewine. Bright aromas of red liquorices dominated by other red berries like strawberry, blueberry, raspberries and apple complimented with purple violets, caramel candies and subtle spices. The soft and delicate palate is highly complex with decadent orange candies, strawberry chocolates, and fruit notes of tangerines, apricots and dark cherries. The fresh acidity is well balanced and integrated into the rich sweetness which gives the wine fullness on the palate. The finish is excessively long and rich which evolves as it lingers. While it is tight in its youth, it will open to an elegant, velvety sensation which is truly one of a kind. Enjoy with chocolate, cakes, creamy desserts and blue cheeses.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
