Winemaker Notes

We pick the organic Vin de Glaciere Riesling grapes at around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. The grapes are then frozen and pressed frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half our yield compared to non-frozen grapes). The concentrated juice is fermented until we reach 18.5% Residual Sugar.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Sweet, polished, focused and expressive, playing the grapefruit, pear and spice flavors against bracing acidity. This avoids being cloying, and persists harmoniously. Delicious now, but should deepen with cellaring. Drink now through 2025.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Made with organic grapes from the Wallula vineyard, this offers honey-soaked pear fruit flavors in abundance. Complex grace notes of English breakfast tea, candied walnuts and fruit leather come up as it winds gently through a lengthy finish. Serve chilled for maximum enjoyment.
CG 90
Connoisseurs' Guide
Taking a very different approach to reach its mouthfilling richness, this wine is not left on the vine to acquire its concentration but is, instead, brought into the winery and frozen. It is then pressed and the water/ice separates from the sweet juice. The result, while less complex, is a wonderful expression of Riesling flowers and peaches in a deep and luscious wine. Its price recognizes that it is not as layered as late harvest Riesling can get, yet its rating accepts that it is an absolutely delicious wine for sipping or service with light desserts.
