A wonderfully sweet nectar fermented with wild yeasts. It exudes aromas of apricot and honey, with a beautiful balance between fruit, sweetness and acidity. Icewine is a gift of wine to be enjoyed on its own or served with dessert.
Grapes are gently pressed and frozen material discarded. The must is fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures, and fermentation is arrested early to produce a wine with low alcohol and intense sweetness.
Chateau des Charmes owns four vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake. These are the largest estate vineyards in Niagara, producing beautifully balanced Late Harvest Riesling, as well as Icewines of incomparable lusciousness and complexity. A graduate of the University of Burgundy at Dijon, Paul Bosc came to Canada from France in the 1960s, bringing five generations of winegrowing experience to his new home.
