Tasting Notes: Peach, Brown sugar, Mango, Minerality
Canada’s first estate winery, Inniskillin, is internationally renowned for its award-winning wines and for its pioneering role in establishing the Canadian wine industry. On July 31, 1975, its founders (Donald Ziraldo and Karl Kaiser (an Italian and an Austrian) made history when they were given the first winery license in Canada since Prohibition. The winery's name was inspired by the land's former owner, the Colonel of the Inniskilling Fusiliers.
The Inniskillin Gold is a rich, unctuous, well balanced, and layered Vidal Ice wine with zippy acidity and a level of freshness to keep the wine from being cloyingly sweet. Honey, ripe peach, candied lemon, grilled pineapple, orange peel, and lychee with notes of clove and minerality cross the satiny palate. There's a little of bit of spicy apricots on the long, mouthwatering finish. Blue veined cheese with dried fruit or fresh peaches or pears; or roasted chicken with grilled peaches will match well.
