Cabernet Franc Ice Wine
Perfect after a meal with a rich dessert or ripe cheese.
Rich and flavorful, with layers of poached Bosc pears, cherries, hazelnuts, caramel, and a lively touch of lemongrass carry through to a long finish in this Cabernet Franc Ice Wine from Glenora Wine Cellars.
The grapes for this wine were picked on January 7, 2014, at 15 degrees F. They were immediately pressed while frozen, yielding a tiny amount of juice at 46% sugar. A long, cool fermentation retained the full complexity of flavors.
