2013 Claar Cellars Columbia Valley Riesling Estate Ice Wine 375 mL
Manufacturer: Claar Cellars
Brand: Claar Cellars
Weather conditions fell to 7 degrees Fahrenheit and the grapes were allowed to freeze on the vine before harvesting. The frozen grapes were pressed over many hours in order to squeeze out the juice that was measured at 38 degrees brix. The wine was fermented to 12 percent alcohol and then stopped leaving 20% sugar in the wine.
Nacina Riesling Ice Wine Santa Lucia Highlands 375 Ml
Manufacturer: Tudor Wines
Nacina, Wein der Eisbox, made from SIP Certified Tondre' Vineyards late harvest Riesling and frozen post harvest is our tech savvy answer to global warming. This "ice wine" is as incredible as any we've tasted. Brisk acidity, ripe Auslesen flavors, and low alcohol makes this a perfect dessert wine.
Bright yellow. Aromas of apricot nectar, honey and marzipan, lifted by a spicy candied ginger nuance. Lush, round and very sweet, offering palate-coating pit fruits and honey flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. In a decidedly rich, decadent style, leading to a sweet, spice-tinged finish that lingers impressively. - Vinous Media
