In Ontario, ice wine must be made as a varietal wine and the grapes must be picked at -8 degrees C or colder! Artificial freezing is forbidden. Grapes must be harvested at a Brix (sugar) level of at least 32 in order to achieve Icewine designation. A high quality Icewine will measure 40 - 42 Brix and these levels usually dictate the price of Icewine. From Bouquet du Vin.
- 1 ounce ice wine
- 3 -4 ounces chilled brut rose sparkling wine
- 1 slice fresh fruit (optional) or 3 sugar dusted halved frozen grapes, for garnish (optional)
- Fill a chilled flute with ice wine and then top with the chilled sparkling rose.
- Garnish with halved frozen grapes or a slice of fresh fruit.
I made this for Christmas dinner/dessert. DH and I love ice wine and have sampled and purchased ice wines from many parts of the US and Canada. This was one from Washington and it contributed to a wonderful end to our Christmas meal! Next time, I'll garnish with berries or grapes.
This is wonderful! I doubled this recipe. I garnished with some fresh raspberries and strawberries as well as some green and purple/red grapes I had on hand. Made for Family Picks ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
