Man, ice wine too damned good. And so, I’m actually making a batch of it. That is, I got a kit that has the juice of Riesling grapes that were allowed to freeze on the vine, then harvested pressed. 3-gallons for US$75.
It is a lot of work (with risk of failure) for a vineyard/winery to grow and produce ice wine. The government will not let anyone sell a wine labeled “Ice Wine” unless it has went through the true process. Instead, you may have seen it labeled (Iced Wine). Take a look at the difference in price, but you may still notice it can be higher than the traditional bottle of wine.
Ice wine is here to stay and people are paying big bucks for it. Naturally, I wanted to try it out at home. And I don’t have to wait for the first frost to start it this time 🙂 I’ll follow-up later with updates.
I’ll let the link to below say the rest.
