These grapes are picked in the wee hours of the morning and pressed while they are still frozen, to
slowly squeeze out a few drops of precious nectar, leaving the water behind as ice. The result is a vibrant, racy dessert wine that is strikingly different
from the rounder, more honeyed style of the wines concentrated by botrytis.
"Vibrant and juicy, displaying flavors of ripe grapefruit, Anjou pear and apple tart. Finishes with notes of spice and golden raisin. Drink now through 2032. 55 cases made."
"The pineapple, litchi and kumquat flavors are tightly focused by the inimitable concentration achieved with frozen grapes, underlined by steely acidity and softly fragrant notes of slate. It’s drinking well now, showing a lot of personality."
Wine & Spirits
"Loosen’s generic 2008 Riesling Eiswein prickles with radish and lemon peel on the nose as well as its very sweet, honeyed palate. So low in alcohol it is barely legally wine, this displays a striking sense of near-weightlessness and an impression of lemon meringue glazed with quince preserves that persists with accompanying sharp impingement that is undeniably invigorating if a tad unruly. I would plan on drinking this over the next 3-5 years. It offers an excellent introduction to a genre ordinarily unapproachably expensive for most wine lovers, and its strong sense of both sweetness and acidity should render it interesting for accompanying certain desserts."
