TASTING NOTES:

A Stunning Icewine that will greet you with aromas of sun-ripened strawberries, honeysuckle and soft cedar notes.  Flavours of dried cherry, raspberry jam and caramelized brown sugar tantalize the palate.  The intense sweetness is balanced by crisp acidity and soft tannins that result in a perfectly structured wine.  Enjoy with the special people in your life, now through 2018. Served chilled.

COLLABORATIVE EFFORT:

This exquisite wine is an artistic collaboration between Ex Nihilo vineyards, located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia Canada and Maestro Igor Babailov, one of the most sought after artists today, honored as the ‘Living Master” by his contemporaries and world renowned for his Inspiration Series of paintings.  The winery and the paintings were inspired by the work of the late Frederick Hart, Master American Figurative Sculptor.

INSPIRATION:

The winery was named after Hart’s famous Ex Nihilo sculpture that dons the west façade of the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.  Impassioned and inspired by Hart – a tribute to his work and legacy – the Journey of Hope, Inspiration Series painting by Igor Babailov, was created in the Grisaille painting technique, historically made famous by the Old Masters.

Together, Ex Nihilo Vineyards and Igor Babailov welcome you in the celebration of the art of fine wines and the eternal beauty of creation.

This rare gift was picked in the coldest moment of the winter season, and as the artwork of Ex Nihilo portrays, is the expression of the metamorphosis of the divine spirit and energy.
