Icewine

Icewines meet the stringent requirements set by the Vintners Quality Alliance. Grapes must be left on the vine well into winter, allowing them to freeze on the vine. The frozen grapes are picked by hand, sorted, and pressed in their frozen state. Water in the grapes remains crystallized, yielding but one drop of sweet concentrated juice from each grape. Icewines that are aromatic, sweet and intensely flavorful, with an abundance of natural acids. Icewines pair perfectly with fresh fruit, young soft cheeses, and less-sweet desserts. Aficionados simply sip them as they would a fine liqueur.
