"There’s a thrilling, ethereal lightness to this feather-weight eiswein. Its luscious melon and mango flavors are dizzying with sweetness, but a laser shock of acidity anchors the midpalate neatly. The finish is slick, lingering on a waxy, caramel tone. Gorgeous now, it should continue to drink well for decades."

Eiswein (“ice wine”) is one of nature’s rare and wonderful gifts for which the Mosel is especially known. Certain plots of vines are set aside in hopes that a deep enough freeze (minimum –8° C or 17° F) will allow a harvest of frozen grapes. These grapes are picked in the wee hours of the morning and pressed while they are still frozen, to slowly squeeze out a few drops of precious nectar, leaving the water behind as ice. The result is a vibrant, racy dessert wine that is strikingly different from the rounder, more honeyed style of the wines concentrated by botrytis.

Very low alcohol (6.5%)
