WHAT: Inniskillin Vidal Icewine 2006 Rating: NNNNN
WHERE: Niagara Peninsula
WHY: Let's be honest - this is super-expensive, and how many people actually drink dessert wines? But if you like the stuff - and I do - then this is a real showstopper. The bouquet is enticingly weird, sort of like dried mushrooms. A dense syrup that dazzles with its Laurence Olivier-like ability to alternate between sweet and sour.
PRICE: 750 ml/$54.95
AVAILABILITY: At most Vintages outlets (product #551085)
