This product is currently sold out.
Nova Scotia’s cool-climate provides the ideal conditions for creating complex, naturally balanced icewines with tremendous ageability.
LWW's inaugural icewine harvest took place on December 28th 2015 when temperatures on the Lightfoot Estate Vineyard in Wolfville dropped to -10°C in the deep cold of the night. A small-lot of grapes which had frozen naturally on the vine were handpicked and transported to the winery for immediate pressing.

The frozen grapes were pressed with a traditional basket press to extract a luscious, concentrated juice. Fermentation was long and cool and took place in stainless steel. This wine was aged for over a year before release.
IN THE GLASS
Amber-gold in the glass. Layers of dried apricot and caramelized apple linger with tropical notes. The palate is luscious and sweet yet structured by the crisp, unmistakably Nova Scotian acidity. Stands alone as a beautiful dessert wine or pairs excellently with blue cheese, foie gras, fruit based desserts, dark chocolate, spicy Asian cuisine and curries. Serve cold (7-12°C) in 1 ounce pours.
