Casa Larga’s Newest Ice Wine Released - Block One - First One in the Country! Available Dec. 7th to the public
Dates: Thursday December 7th –
Time: 10:00 – 6:00pm
Location: Casa Larga Retail Store
The grapes used for this ice wine are some of the oldest grapes in the vineyard and come from one specific row in Block 1—the first grapes planted by Andrew Colaruotolo (Mr. C) in 1974. This is the only field blend ice wine in the country! The types of grapes in this row were unknown until just recently, when we discovered a transcription of Mr. C’s black leather book that he kept under the seat of his old Ford tractor. Over fifty percent of this blend is Vidal –a grape we know well and love. Thirty seven percent of the blend is from a grape called Marechal Foch, a deep red French American hybrid grape developed in Alsace, France. The blend is rounded out with six percent Golden Muscat, which has a tangy, citrus like flavor. This ice wine has flavors of candied oranges, figs, sultana raisins, and cloves. It is rich and full bodied with a wonderful amber color. Can be enjoyed on its own or with desserts: shortbread with fall fruit compote, soft goat cheese infused with cranberries, and cannoli. This wine is also fantastic with savory items such as salty cashews and shelled chestnuts sautéed in butter. Only 17 cases produced.
