Dessert Wines

  Glass Bottle
Vidal Icewine VQA 2005 $17 $51
Lailey, Niagara-on-the-Lake 2oz 200ml
A Bronze Medal winner at the Ontario Wine Awards. Icewine is made by allowing grapes to freeze on the vine and then picked and pressed while the juice is still frozen. This wine, made from 100% Vidal grapes, is luscious and rich wine with aromas and flavours of ripe apricot, mandarin, honey, sponge toffee, and caramel. Match with fruit desserts, as well as dark chocolate and cheeses.
 
Framboise NV $7 $20
Downey’s Estate Winery, Caledon 2oz 200ml
Made from 100% raspberries. Sweet and rich, with aromas and flavours of fresh picked fruit – you think you are drinking raspberries – and notes of cassis. Think local and match with warm fruit desserts as well as dark chocolate desserts.
 
Cassis NV $7 $20
Downey’s Estate Winery, Caledon 2oz 200ml
Made from Black Currants, this is an intense fruit wine, deep ruby purple in colour. Sweet and rich, with aromas and flavours of dark berry fruit with slight floral and herb notes. Full, however the fresh acidity provides a nice clean finish. Pair with richer desserts, including dark chocolate desserts.
 
Liquore Grappa di Camomilla $14 $110
Distilleria Dott. Mario Montanaro 2oz 500ml
Don’t be put off by the word grappa in the name, this specialty drink of Northern Italy bears very little resemblance to that clear, often harsh spirit. This sweetened infusion of dried chamomile leaves and Grappa di Nebbiolo offers up a gentle warmth, with delicate tea-like aromas and flavours with notes of candied orange and nuts. Exotic and compelling, the aromas will last long after your glass is empty. Great at the end a meal and a good match for cheese or chocolate desserts.
 
Maple Gold NV $9 $28
Downey’s Estate Winery, Caledon 2oz 200ml
Enticing orange maple gold colour, with rich, sweet maple aromas and flavours and smoky/nutty notes. Early run syrup is used, so the palate is more elegant than full, yet it still has a rich mouth feel and a long clean finish. A “local” alternative to port-style drinks: match with hard cheese and dark chocolate desserts.
 
Ten-Year-Old Tawny Port $8 $80
Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal 2oz 750ml
This fortified wine is called “Tawny port” because of the distinctive colour that results from being aged in large oak casks for a minimum of 10 years before release. It is warm, elegant, and smooth with subtle vanilla-wood aromas and flavours over notes of caramel, toffee, and orange peel. A perfect after-dinner drink – match with dark chocolate or coffee-flavoured desserts.
