Ice Wine (Niagara)--Sparkling Ponds
From the Sparkling Ponds website, "Sparkling Ponds premier offering. Sweet and delicious, our ice wine is a perfect accompaniment to dessert."
This is good stuff if you like a sweet wine. A little pricey (well on a church worker's salary anyway!), but very excellent. Ice wine is produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. The sugars and other dissolved solids do not freeze, but the water does, so the result is a concentrated, often very sweet wine.
