We are proud to release the first vintage of Estate grown Icewine from the Victoria Vineyard with this 2014 Riesling Icewine. This is the first Icewine produced from the Victoria Vineyard which was planted in 2007 on the original Inniskillin Winery site in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This exclusively Riesling vineyard is planted on a gently rolling hillside of sandy loam terroir with five Riesling clones on four different rootstock. Ziraldo Icewine is made to the highest standards of quality, grown using sustainable practices and exemplifies the true character of the Niagara region. Riesling is the classic Icewine varietal first produced in Germany in the 1700’s.

Ziraldo Riesling Icewine
榮譽呈獻維多利亞莊園出產首次推出的年份佳釀:2014 年雷司令冰酒 (RieslingIcewine)。雷司令是最經典的冰酒葡萄品種,早在十七世紀已在德國出產。維多利亞莊園乃是雲嶺酒莊(Inniskillin Winery)於Niagara-on-the-Lake 之原址。葡萄於2007 年種植,而今次發行的是莊主Donald 的首批冰酒。莊園位處微斜的沙壤土 坡,全園專注培植雷司令葡萄單一品種,並用上五個克隆和四種嫁接砧根。 Ziraldo 冰酒為最高品質標準,栽種及釀酒均使用可持續發展的技術,彰顯尼亞加拉產區之真正特色。
酒瓶由Donald Ziraldo 及太太Victoria 親筆簽名!(Decanter Rated 93)
