Pillitteri 2008 Sparkling Icewine Cabernet (Ontario)
After two days of driving we’ve arrived in Florida, had dinner with Erica’s (my fiancée) parents and I finally met Grandma. Seemed only right to toast the occasion with something special – good thing I brought along this Pillitteri Sparkler from home (Ontario). Not your usual icewine, this one’s got bubbles and it’s red (made with Cabernet Franc); sweet raspberries and strawberries with just enough fizz to keep smiles on faces. Nothing like welcoming new family with something sweet – the bubbly part was a bonus.
