Chardonnay Icewine

Kalala Chardonnay Icewine bottle shot

$80.00 (inc. tax)

Sweet aromas of honeysuckle, lemon meringue, and apricot. Semi-sweet, with well-balanced acidity. Lengthy finish of nuttiness, candied orange peel, and pear.

Growing conditions

These organic Chardonnay grapes were grown in the Kalala Vineyard in West Kelowna.
Picking started on December 23 when the temperature dropped to -9.5 and the fruit was at 39 Brix.

1.5 tons of grapes were picked giving 400 L of icewine.

Winemaking notes

We selected the 2 TD specialty yeast for the fermentation of our Chardonnay icewine. We did a long, slow fermentation for 68 days, keeping the fruit flavours prominent. Partial barrel aging.
