Eiswein - ice wine

(Qualitätswein mit Prädikat)

Eiswein - ice wines of Beerenauslese intensity, made from grapes harvested and pressed while frozen to concentrate sugar, acidity and extract. Truly unique wines with a remarkable concentration of fruity acidity and sweetness.

Early in the morning - when it is still dark outside - the frozen grapes are picked at temperatures not higher than - 7° C.
