Cabernet Franc Icewine 2008


Caroline Cellars Cabernet Franc Icewine is from the Niagara Falls region in Ontario Canada, one of the most romantic places on earth. The Cabernet Franc grapes are handpicked and the artisan wine maker puts his full love and passion into making this Icewine. The focus is a bliss of happiness as the risk and sacrifice yield the inherited romance. This Icewine is the adhesive that can bind two hearts together, and make romance timeless and complete.


Caroline Cellars Cabernet Franc Icewine is part of an Elite Collection of Icewines designed to bring the romance back into wine by introducing Icewine as The Most Romantic Wine™. Distinctive characteristics from each varietal evoke a different taste profile and emotion. This rich, flavorful nectar will be a wine that can be paired with your mood not just your food. The discerning consumer will appreciate the promise of this collection.


This Icewine is the Artisan Prince of Caroline Cellars Winery. It is created from the winery's estate grown grapes. Mother Nature's special winter kiss sets the stage for The Most Romantic Wine™. Grapes are left on the vine well into the winter months to naturally freeze and thaw. This process causes dehydration in the grape so it concentrates the sugars, acids, and extracts, thereby intensifying the flavors while adding complexity to the wine. The handpicked grapes are immediately pressed at the coldest moment of a winter’s night under the strict supervision of the VQA. Each pressed frozen grape creates just one smooth, rich, luxurious drop of Icewine juice. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks for at least 3 months or more by the artisan wine maker. As a result this Icewine has aromas of red apple, cinnamon, and tangerine. On the palate, this wine is sweet, with ripe apple and rich butterscotch notes and finishes with a prominent spiciness.


Served Chilled. Best served alone or can be mixed with a myriad of selected liquors to commence a Romantic Journey ™ cocktail.
