Ice House Slushies Cabernet Sauvignon (Ontario) - Wine Review



Tonight's wine is this delicious dessert wine made by The Ice House Winery, located in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

I picked up this bottle last January during the Icewine Festival. It's worth noting even though it is a sweet, dessert wine, it is not VQA, nor is it labelled as Icewine. Regardless, those who prefer sweet wines will enjoy this one.

Tasting Note:
Citrus, orange marmalade and date aromas from the cork. Medium-high aromatics from the glass featuring orange peel, dried cherry, and poached currants. It's medium-bodied and sweet on the palate with cherry, orange, tea flavours and some bitter currants on the medium-long finish. Acids are crisp and balance the sweetness well. Requires only a light chill. Score: 88 pts

  1. My only quibble is the name - makes me think I'll be getting a fun frozen beverage. ;)

    1. haha. Yeah... the name is a little bit funny. I'm assuming they went this direction because they couldn't call it "Icewine".

      By no coincidence, when we first had it last January, they did serve it in a slushie and it was delicious.
