Story: The Ice Wine was made of Rhine Riesling, which was harvested on December 20, 2007 when the temperature dropped to –7 Celsius. By this times the berries were shrivelled and due to frost ice crystals were formed within the berries, which did not get into the grape juice when being pressed. The grape juice flew very slowly from the berries, which became outstandingly aromatic and fruity.
Dark tones, almost the colour of the ancient gold. A really special wine to be the last course of a dinner. The fruity nose reveals the wonderful balance of apricot, hazelnut, almond and acacia honey.
