Magic Ice Wine: A Taste of Frozen Elegance

Today, we embark on a journey to explore one of the most captivating and rarest treasures in the world of wine: Ice Wine. This liquid gold is more than just a beverage; it’s a testament to the dedication and patience of Moldova’s esteemed winemakers.

The Dance of Frost and Grape

Imagine a vineyard blanketed in a coat of frost, where the grapes transform into jewels of concentrated flavour. This is the magic of Ice Wine. Winemakers patiently wait for the perfect moment when temperatures plummet, signaling that the grapes are ready for their frozen transformation.

Nature’s Hand in the Winemaking Process

The grapes are left to hang on the vine, defying the chill of winter. As the water within the fruit freezes and the sugars intensify, a delicate dance between nature and nurture commences. This process, known as cryoextraction, ensures that only the purest essence of the grape is captured.

The Precise Harvest

Harvesting grapes for Ice Wine requires precision and speed. Winemakers rise with the dawn, carefully hand-selecting each frozen cluster. The grapes are then gently pressed, yielding a nectar of richness and sweetness.

From Vineyard to Bottle

The extracted juice undergoes a slow and meticulous fermentation process, allowing the flavours to develop into a symphony of complexity. The result? A wine with vibrant acidity balancing the opulent sweetness.

The Symphony of Tasting Notes

Picture this: a glass of Ice Wine with its bouquet of honeyed apricots, luscious peaches, and a hint of citrus zest. As it touches your palate, experience the natural sweetness and crisp acidity, culminating in a lingering finish.

It takes a great deal of labour and love to make Ice Wine. When you have it with dessert, you miss the point of enjoying it on its own.
