Ontario Icewine Black


Icewine, one of Canada’s best kept secrets, is created when grapes are left on the vine until after the first freeze, and then those frozen grapes are crushed and fermented. The freezing process concentrates the sugars and creates an intensely fruity wine like no other. This tea, made with real Ontario ice wine, is redolent with beguiling sweet pear notes and hints of berry and caramel. You might even find a grape or two! To enhance the natural flavors, consumption with sugar is recommended.

Icewine.the nectar of winter. Or, should we say, nectar of the gods? What else could you possibly call a drink that goes for upwards of $250,000 per 350 ml (11.8 oz)? That’s the price you’d have to pay for an ultra rare bottle of Royal DeMaria, 2000 Chardonnay icewine. Most icewines are priced well below that figure, but they still garner higher prices than traditional wines. Why? The grapes used to make the sweet dessert wine aren’t pressed until they are frozen. As such, 1/5th the amount of grape juice is pressed from each frozen grape compared to the non-frozen variety. For vintners, a general rule of thumb is that each frozen grape will yield just one drop of icewine. The flavor of the finished product is divine. Depending on the varietal, the nose can offer notes of peach, pear, honey, dried apricot and green apple. In the glass, the flavor is a sumptuous combination of apricot, peach, mango, melon and other sweet fruits. This fabulous black tea blend uses real icewine to deliver all that fruity sweetness in a rich, round cuppa.
