The 2021 Inniskillin Riesling Icewine from the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario, Canada is a truly remarkable white wine that exemplifies the artistry and skill of its producer, Inniskillin. With its enticing image of a half bottle glistening in the light, this wine promises a sensory experience like no other.

Crafted from the Riesling varietal, this Icewine showcases the unique characteristics of the grape. The 2021 vintage was particularly challenging, with rainfall during harvest time. However, the strict selection process ensured that only the highest quality grapes were used, resulting in a wine that is both fresh and lively.

Upon pouring, the wine reveals a beautiful golden hue, reminiscent of the sun-kissed vineyards where the grapes were grown. The aromas are intoxicating, with waves of peaches and apricots dominating the nose. As the wine dances on the palate, the flavors explode, with notes of candied orange peel, ginger, and toasted walnut taking center stage. These intense flavors are perfectly balanced by the wine's electric acidity, creating a harmonious symphony of taste.

The 2021 Inniskillin Riesling Icewine has received high praise from wine critics. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it an impressive score of 92, noting its surprisingly perky feel and juicy finish. Wine Enthusiast, on the other hand, awarded it a stellar score of 96, describing it as a glorious icewine where acidity and sugar are in perfect harmony.

This wine is a true delight to savor and can be enjoyed now or cellared for further aging. Its high quality and freshness ensure that there is no rush to drink it, allowing it to develop even more character with time. Whether enjoyed on its own as a dessert wine or paired with a decadent cheese platter, the 2021 Inniskillin Riesling Icewine promises an unforgettable experience for wine enthusiasts and novices alike.
