Certain plots of vines from estate vineyards within Erden and Ürzig are held aside with the hopes for a deep enough freeze to harvest 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.
Aromatically the wine is filled with notes of ripe and sweet tropical fruits. The palate is bright with a kick of acidity right in the middle of the mouthfeel, and finishes with a thicker, caramel accented flavor.
