Henry of Pelham

Riesling Icewine 2019

Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery is a premium estate winery located on the Short Hills Bench at the base of the Niagara Escarpment (a United Nations biosphere) in St. Catharines, Ontario (roughly 110 km from Toronto on the southern shore of the lake Ontario). Here the summers are warm, with cool nights, and the autumn chill is followed by a quick shift to winter's cold; these are the perfect conditions for producing lcewine. Made from grapes that are naturally frozen on the vine, with nectar that is both elegantly sweet and concentrated. Perfumed and citrusy with notes of white peach, lime blossom, and green apple. Further aging will develop flavors of dried fruits and honey. Enjoy this delicious wine now with cheesecake, rich pies, and more, or cellar for up to 15 years.

Henry of Pelham

Henry of Pelham is named after the founder and great-grand-patriarch of the Smith family, who grew Concord and Niagara grapes — some of the first to be planted in Canada. Generations later, in 1984, the Niagara wine scene hardly existed. There were a lot of naysayers back then — Niagara summers are warm and autumn is cool, followed by a quick shift into the winter cold. But the pioneering spirit of the family drove them to start premium wines using Old World vinifera grapes and a forward-thinking eye toward environmental stewardship.

In 2006, Henry of Pelham was the first vineyard to be certified as local and sustainable by Local Food Plus. They’ve followed Sustainable Winemaking Ontario's world-leading standards in farming practices since 2004. And, in 2017, they became one of only six Ontario wineries to be certified by the Wine Council of Ontario as following sustainable winemaking practices from vine to table.
