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.
Beaten gold color with glimmering highlights. Dense and sticky, it exposes ripe poached pears, candied berry, honey, and golden raisin aromas. Vibrant fruit flavors accented by the natural sweetness are well balanced with embedded orange zest. The finish is fresh with fruity core leading to tantalizing citrus and lingering aftertaste.
Aperitif, digestive. Pairs quite well with a wide range of fruit-based desserts, whether you're serving a banana pudding, a peach cobbler, or a pineapple upside-down cake. Also perfect with citrus, pineapple, honeydew, and kiwi, soft and spicy cheese or pates.
