Holiday Wines pt. 2
Now that we have dinner covered with some table wine, we can start to explore the more exciting wines out there, sparkling and dessert wines. There's nothing your guests want more than receiving a bottle of bubbles, or being handed a glass as they walk in the door. And there is no finer Niagara way to finish a meal than with Icewine
Sparkling wines are classic aperitif, typically enjoyed at the beginning of the meal to stimulate the sense. The carbonation is also a great way to cleanse the palate between courses, allowing everyone to enjoy the meal to its full potential.
Our Serenity Sparkling Riesling is an amazing example of Charmat method sparkling. With bright acidity and subtle sweetness, the citrus and green apple forward will be loved by everyone. Our FRESH Sparkling Rosé is a great way to start, or end the meal. Notes of cherry, citrus and strawberry fill the palate and pair beautifully with fruit-based desserts.
The holidays are the perfect reason (or excuse) to open that special bottle of wine. Icewines are something that are so unique, and quintessentially Niagara, they are a welcome addition to any meal. Choosing the right Icewine for the dessert is key, as some are overly sweet that seem to overpower everything else that you're pairing it with.
Our Lakeview Cellars Vidal Icewine is THE prime example of what Icewine should be. Balancing acidity, with notes of tropical fruit, honey, and apricots, the Vidal Icewine is a welcome addition to any table (or cellar). Luckily for everyone it is currently on sale for $20.95 ($2 off) until January 2nd, and is also available in LCBO and select grocery stores. If you want to truly impress your guests or host, our Lakeview Cellars Cabernet Franc Icewine is a true specialty. Intensely jammy palate filled with cherries, raspberries and rhubarb. Cabernet Franc Icewine is something that very few have had the for trying, so it's a great way to impress a crowd.
Everyone has their favourite wines, but these specialty bottles are sure to impress everyone!
