This rare and special dessert wine is made from 60% frozen Riesling and 40% Muscat. The Muscat gives the attractive nose while Riesling lends complexity and brightness. After harvest, the grapes are pressed and the juice is frozen solid. As the mass begins to melt, the intensely sweet juice melts first, leaving the water behind. We diligently taste as the juice runs joining with some of the water over a three day period until we have reached the desired sweetness, flavor, and acid profile.
"High toned notes of clementine, dried mango, sultanas and vanilla poached pears are intermingled with hints of juniper berry, clove and amaretto. The palate is lavender honey and guava, finishing with an orange zest and tamarind brightness."
