Winemaker Notes

In the late summer of 2007, a select block of Riesling grapes was covered by netting to prevent predation by birds and deer. This block was destined for Riesling Ice Wine and was harvested frozen on January 2 and 20, 2008. The sugar level of the juice for our Late Harvest was 34 Brix (normal for wine is 22). Fermentation continued for 39 days at ~65 F (VL1 yeast) and was stopped by chilling. The final wine includes 20% 2007 Riesling blended for balance and harmony.

Food Pairing

This lovely wine will be delicious with fruit desserts such as Peach Cobbler or an Almond Pear Cake With Crème Fraîche.
