Inniskillin 1999 Dornfelder Icewine

Friends, help me out with this one. I've left messages for Inniskillin themselves and I can't get a response.

Someone out there must be either familiar with this rare icewine, have tried it, or has it in their collection. I'm an absolute fan of icewines and wanted to know how more about it, hence my attempt to contact Inniskillin. From what I've gathered, it was an experiment by Karl Kaiser and was never made again - not from the standpoint of quality, but from one of low yield.

Anyone out there have any info on it, or personal experiences?

  1. at least as of last year it was available online. I had a bottle, it was enjoyable (if a bit flabby)

      Thanks for the info, I'll keep looking. Btw, can you describe 'flabby' a bit more? Too rich? No finish? I'm trying to picture what a flabby icewine would taste like, but I can't.

        Not enough acid to balance the sweetness.
