Ice wine is a special rarity, the production of which was first discovered by chance in Germany in the 19th century due to an early onset of winter. Temperatures below -7 °C cause the water in the grapes to freeze, thus concentrating the aromas and sweet extract. The grapes are processed in the cellar while still frozen and the wine is harvested and pressed under the supervision of a regulatory body.
A deep yellow color with golden shines, strong velvety aroma of flowers with fine hints of passion fruit and mango in the nose, lots of structure on the palate, sweetness carried by lively acidity, exciting and youthfully animating.
Pairs well with: Strong cheese and spicy Asian inspired cuisine. Perfect as an elegant fruity digestif.
