We pick our Icewine at -10°C or colder to make sure every ounce of water left in the grapes is completely frozen. We don’t want to dilute this incredible wine in any way. Once in the Harvest Room we press the frozen bunches of grapes at up to 100 psi just to extract a few trickles of the thick and sweet juice. Because the juice is so cold and sweet we have to use aggressive yeast to start and maintain fermentation, which can take several months. The wine is sweet but is finely balanced with fruit flavours and a strong backbone of acidity. Riesling is one of the great white grape varieties with excellent aging potential. This wine is a terrific example. - Winemaker's notes
