Additional Information on Inniskillin Icewine Cabernet Franc 2007

Winery: Inniskillin

Vintage: 2007

2007 was the year that saw California's wine industry pick up once again, after a troubling couple of years. Indeed, all across the state of California, fantastic harvests were reported as a result of fine weather conditions throughout the flowering and ripening periods, and Napa Valley and Santa Barbera wines were widely considered amongst the best in the world in 2007, with Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes packing in all sorts of fine and desirable features in this year. South Africa, too, had a much-needed fantastic year for red wines, with Pinotage particularly displaying strong characteristics, alongside the country's other flagship red wine grape varietals. Over in Europe, France had another fine year, especially for white wines. Champagne wineries were very happy with their Chardonnay harvests, and the Loire Valley and Graves in Bordeaux are proclaiming 2007 to be a memorable year due to the quality of their white wine grapes. For French red wines, Provence had their best year for almost a decade, as did the Southern Rhone. However, 2007 was most favorable to Italy, who saw high yields of exceptional quality across almost all of their major wine producing regions. Tuscany is claiming to have produced its best Chianti and Brunello wines for several years in 2007, and Piedmont and Veneto had a wonderful year for red wines. For Italian white wines, 2007 was an extremely successful year for Alto Adige and Campania. Germany also had a very good 2007, with Riesling displaying extremely dry and crisp characteristics, as did Portugal, where Port wine from 2007 is said to be one to collect.

Country: Canada

The colder climate of Canada is not one normally associated with viticulture and wine production, but in actual fact this large northern country has been involved in wine-making for over two hundred years. Many of the grapes grown in Canada are of German and Austrian origin, countries which share many of the same climatic conditions as Canada, and thus are hardy enough to survive and flourish in the cooler temperatures of the vineyards there. Indeed, many of the characterful and distinctive wines of Canada rely on early frosts, and it is not unusual for wineries to allow their grapes to freeze on the vine for the production of the intensely aromatic ice wine. Most of Canada's vineyards are currently located in Ontario and British Columbia, and recent interest in the country's produce has resulted in many more thousands of hectares of vineyards being planted across the country.
