Minus 8 is ice wine vinegar named for the temperature at which the grapes are harvested and pressed. Icewine is made by picking grapes that are naturally frozen on the vine and pressing them while they are still frozen. The yield is very limited; the juice is rich, naturally sweet and full of flavour. Minus 8 is then barrel aged for many years and further aged in bottle. It will age well in unopened bottle for over a decade. Does not need to be refrigerated after opening. • Tasting Notes: Appearance: Deep dark amber colour Density: Quite thick, concentrated and viscous; it flows down the glass with a thick coating Aromas: Very complex, quite aromatic, with a forward notes of ripe tropical fruit, apple butter, Asian spice, a combination of dried and baked/stewed fruit (a mixed bag), vanilla, sandalwood/cedar, cocoa powder and nuances of toasted nut, madeira and cream sherry. Palate: Sweet, rich, concentrated flavours follow its aromatic profile, with additions of caramel, prune, plum, cooked sweet tree fruit; finish is amazingly long and persistent.
