Like many great European ice wines, this wine was crafted from grapes left hanging on the vine into the new calander year. As the temperature dropped to 9 degrees F on January 13 and the grapes froze, harvest commenced. Rock solid grapes were hand-picked and pressed. Because the sweet juice melts before the water component, we quickly discarded the remaining still-frozen material to avoid diluting the rick, succulent nectar. We hope you enjoy the resulting elixer of the gods!
The wine is a brilliant green hue with strong honeysuckle aromas. The nose gives way to intense honey, fig and sweet oak on the palate. This is a clean, intense wine that lingers lovingly on the palate. The wine's sweetness is balanced by its natural acidity and a subtle oak suppleness in the mouth. This wine is a dessert itself, or it will complement any cream-based confection. This is a wine that will cellar for enjoyment in the future.
