You can get ice wine in the supermarkets, preferable Jasons, Cold storage or any other wine place such as Denise.

BTW as far as i know, there is no REDs for ice wine

The real thing is German and white, not red.
Inniskillin is Canadian.

Ask Plsoong, he is the wine expert here.
wah liew......... :kok: i'm NO wine expert lor....there are plenty here....all just diam diam onli.

Yes thats the iniskilin Cabernet Franc....

but i'm a old fart....so i still prefer the white ice wines :D

AND FOR THE RECORD, i'm lousy at ice wines, white wines......... I'm more biased towards reds with full body....so in actuality, there's no wine experts so to speak...ultimately whats your desire and what do u prefer.... :)

I know some people are totally agst reds.......(esp non man U fans......okay...lame joke...)..

if u buy a bottle and open n try and...hmmmm...nice, then yes, thats the bottle for u :)
the only thing people tend to do after that is to be like a crazy fella like me to try to associate what various discerning tastes from the wines seem to suggest....like "chocolate?.....leather? tar?....raw resin from pine trees?....flavours and smells...that seem to associate..."

yada yada yada...i'm sure redstorm yawning liao.....he's another wine expert lor:sweat:

ah actually, there's much debate about the orgin of ice wine or eiswein (in german). some said germany some said canada and some said austria. but it's generally accepted that eiswein is made in countries with extreme cold and canada is the most well-known exporter currently. hence inniskilin is so popular, not just in sg.

there are many countries producing eiswein, the biggest would be canada followed by germany and others such as new zealand, chile, czech, austria. there are fake or similar eiswein around, germany produces different grades of sweet wine such as the splatese.

sg is only limited to canandian eiswein. if u are looking for other countries, try the wine shops, they might have special imports.

2 cents on eiswein... too damm sweet, this is a dessert wine. most sg just drink it like very expensive soda, act atas... the chiliean and NZ ones i had tasted as good as the one from canada. as for people who say german eiswein are the best, well the austrian tasted as good and a lot depends on the harvest and not the branding.

Hey, bro Soong, don't eat so much humble pies, ok? Bad for you. :bsmilie: Sorry, sad, but true, just started drinking wine not so long ago and haven't even tasted ice wine. So, no comment here. Wait till I get my bonus so that I can pamper myself with a bottle. :sticktong Wasted, I should have told my Austrian friend, when I visited him last year, to get me a bottle of Austrian ice wine. Didn't think of it then. Just indulged in too many of their red wine and totally forgot about it. My next trip, maybe. :cheers:

Wine shop Denise seems to have a range of ice wine.
since u are into dessert wines, you should try Tokaji - Hungarian sweet wine. Denise has it.

For German icewines, can get from Funan - Cafe de Amigo 2nd floor. Reasonable prices.
Shop for camera, and then shop for wines.

Ice wines is 'shiok'. Used to go straight for it at DFS.
Some years ago, bought Wolf Blass Noble Gold at Liang Court which was also very sweet, but cannot find it now.

i remember seeing a wine shop in beach road shaw towers selling them.
the number of puttonyos determine the sweetness of the wine.
aszu is basically the name for the wine.
if u can find a bottle of aszu-eszencia, it signifies the best of the best. in the past, it's supposedly reserved for the monarch, only to be taken when he is dying. O_O""
