It's Time: Inniskillin Wines Icewine Harvest 2012

Niagara and Okanagan wineries give a warm welcome to subzero temperatures

TORONTO, Jan. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - After months of watching the weather, Inniskillin Wines is pleased to announce the annual Icewine harvest will be in full swing in Niagara-on-the-Lake tonight and has been completed in the Okanagan. Inniskillin, renowned as the global leader in Icewine, has waited patiently on stand-by for the perfect weather conditions to pick the 2012 harvest of grapes, which will be pressed in the extreme cold to extract their coveted nectar.

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Frigid temperatures on Sunday and into today are leading Inniskillin into the 2012 Icewine Harvest beginning around midnight tonight. Fluctuating temperatures have kept the team closely watching the weather predictions.  This intense, non-stop watch is done by vineyard manager Gerald Klose and winemaker Bruce Nicholson. The naturally frozen grapes of Cabernet Franc and Riesling will be harvested first from the Woerthle Vineyard, (Line 4 at Concession 6, Niagara-on-the-Lake, within the Four Mile Creek sub appellation) in the early morning hours of Tuesday, with pressing starting at 9:00 am.  Following this, the Vidal grapes will be harvested from the Brae Burn Vineyard, (Line 3 at the winery site, Niagara River sub appellation).  All of the grapes will be picked by mechanical harvester.

Nicholson is looking for the critical balance between the natural sugars and the natural acidities. He is anxious to try the first freshly pressed juice on Tuesday morning for an indication of what is to come for this vintage.

Inniskillin plans to expand the Sparkling Icewine portfolio with this 2012 vintage by creating a limited release Cabernet Franc Sparkling Icewine.  Currently Nicholson produces a Vidal Sparkling Icewine which has been highly awarded and much sought after. Nicholson is relieved to get started on this new vintage after a highly successful year of prestigious awards dominated by his Icewines.
