The fully frozen grapes are hand-harvested in early December when the outside temperature falls to -9°C. At these temperatures, the water portion of each grape separates from sugar, flavor, and acid components. The water freezes and crystallizes leaving the other compounds as suspended liquid drops among the water crystals.
Light pomegranate color, with brick highlights. Intense aroma of honey, strawberry jam, poached quince, and red grape juice. The taste repeats the nose, adding mandarin and prune jam. The finish is lingering, showing well-balanced and inviting aftertaste.
Cheeses with strong flavor as blues like Gorgonzola and Roquefort are splendid partners for these wines. Aged, hard cheeses—such as Parmigiano Reggiano—are also good picks
Nuts and anchovy-infused dishes also work well. Spicy, salty, or rich dishes that are liver based, such as foie gras, or pates will also be complex enough to stand up to the flavors of ice wines; desserts.
