It’s pure Niagara legend: The tale of the unlikely odd couple that went on to become two of the founding fathers of Canadian Wine. Karl Kaiser, the studious, Austrian-born chemist, and Donald Ziraldo, the young Italian Canadian agriculture graduate, both grew up with wine at the family dinner table. While tasting Ontario Wines in the early 70’s, they realized a gap existed in the premium market segment. They seized the opportunity to fill that gap and set out to break new ground to produce premium varietal wines from premium grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula. Inniskillin is proud to have continued to make great wines from two distinguished and distinct grape growing regions of Canada and to win awards and accolades for a full range of fine wines and stunning Icewines.
The Riesling Icewine is golden honey coloured with rich and exotic, densely layered flavours of tropical fruit, apricot and honey backed by crisp acidity. It has a luscious mouth feel with an extended elegant finish.
