Red Ice Wine
A sweet red wine made from a cabernet sauvignon base. Its rich pink colour draws you into this unique and flavourful ice wine which has hints of strawberry and apricot when sipped. The acidity is well balanced with the sweetness, which gives the wine fullness on the palate. It is best enjoyed with chocolates, creamy desserts and blue cheeses.

​The name derives from Porto, a northern town in Portugal. Port is a sweet, red wine which originated in the 18th century when the English took to the practice of adding brandy in order to stabilize wine for the long sea journey. This port-style wine is medium-bodied with bold flavours of figs, brandy macerated raisins and caramel.

Chocolate Cherry Port
​A complex multi dimensional flavor of ripe black cherries with hints of chocolate combined with the subtle sweetness of a quality port. It is best served as a dessert wine or with fresh cheese and fruits.
