What is Ice Wine?

Ice wine is a rare and luxurious dessert wine made from grapes that have been naturally frozen while still on the vine. The freezing process concentrates the sugars and flavours, resulting in a sweet, rich, and aromatic wine.


Ice Wine Historical Background

Origins and Early History

The concept of freezing grapes for winemaking has been around for centuries. Ancient Romans are believed to have used this technique, but it wasn’t until the late 1700s in Franconia, Germany, that ice wine as we know it today was first documented.

Development in Germany

Germany is the birthplace of modern ice wine. The cold winters provided the perfect environment for naturally freezing grapes. Over the years, German winemakers refined their techniques, making the country a leading producer of high-quality wines.

Rise of Ice Wine in Canada

Canada has become synonymous with ice wine, particularly in regions like Niagara and British Columbia. The country’s harsh winters are ideal for this wine production, and Canadian wines are now celebrated for their exceptional quality and distinct flavours.


Major Ice Wine Producers


Canada is the top producer, known for its strict regulatory standards and high-quality products. Notable regions include Niagara, Ontario, and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.


Germany remains a significant player in the ice wine market. Thanks to their long tradition and expertise, regions like Rheinhessen, Mosel, and Nahe produce some of the finest ice wines.


Austria produces excellent ice wines, mainly from the regions of Burgenland and Wachau. Austrian ice wines are known for their purity and vibrant acidity.

United States

The United States, particularly New York’s Finger Lakes region and Michigan, has seen a growing interest in production of this wine. American ice wines are gaining recognition for their quality and unique characteristics.


China has entered the market, with regions like Liaoning and Shandong producing ice wines that are starting to gain international attention.


Japan, particularly the northern island of Hokkaido, has also begun producing ice wine. Japanese ice wines are known for their delicate flavours and meticulous production processes.


Ice Wine Production Process

Vineyard Conditions

Producing requires specific vineyard conditions. Grapes must remain on the vines until temperatures drop to at least -8°C (17.6°F), ensuring that they freeze naturally.

Harvesting Techniques

Harvesters typically pick grapes in the early morning hours when temperatures are at their lowest. They carefully pick the frozen grapes to avoid damaging the delicate fruit.


Cryoextraction, a modern technique, mechanically freezes the grapes. While it can mimic the natural freezing process, traditionalists argue that it doesn’t produce the same quality as naturally frozen grapes.

Traditional vs. Modern Methods

Traditional production relies on natural freezing, while modern methods may use technologies like cryoextraction. Both approaches have their proponents, but many consider natural freezing superior.

Regulatory Requirements

Regulatory standards for production vary by country. In Canada and Germany, strict regulations ensure that producers use only naturally frozen grapes, maintaining the integrity and quality of the wine.


Grape Varieties Used for Ice Wine


Riesling is the most commonly used grape variety for ice wine, known for its high acidity and aromatic qualities. These ice wines are celebrated for their balance and complexity.


Vidal is another popular grape variety, especially in Canada. It produces rich, fruity ice wines with a slightly lower acidity than Riesling.


Gewürztraminer grapes create aromatic and floral ice wines. They are less common but offer an unique flavour profile.

Other Varieties

Other grape varieties include Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, and Merlot. Each variety brings its unique characteristics to the finished product.


Characteristics of Ice Wine

Ice Wine Flavour Profile

This wine is known for its intense sweetness, balanced by a vibrant acidity. Common flavours include tropical fruits, honey, citrus, and stone fruits.


The aroma is equally captivating, with notes of ripe fruits, flowers, and honey. The bouquet is often complex and evolves as the wine ages.


This wine typically has a rich, golden colour, which can range from pale yellow to deep amber, depending on the grape variety and ageing process.

Sweetness Levels

It is a dessert wine known for its sweetness. However, the best ice wines maintain a balance of sweetness and acidity, preventing them from being overly cloying.


Tasting and Appreciating Ice Wine

Proper Serving Temperature

It should be served chilled, around 8-10°C (46-50°F). This temperature enhances its flavours and aromas without dulling its complexity.

Tasting Notes

When tasting, pay attention to its sweetness, acidity, and flavour complexity. Look for notes of tropical fruits, honey, and citrus, and enjoy the long, lingering finish.

Sensory Experience

The rich aroma, vibrant flavours, and smooth texture create a luxurious and memorable tasting experience.


Food Pairing with Ice Wine


It pairs beautifully with desserts like fruit tarts, crème brûlée, and cheesecakes. The sweetness of the wine complements and enhances the flavours of the dessert.


Try pairing with blue cheese, aged cheddar, or creamy brie for a delightful contrast of flavours.

Savoury Dishes

Surprisingly, it can also pair well with savoury dishes. Try it with foie gras, spicy Asian cuisine, or roasted vegetables to experience a unique and delicious combination.

Unique Pairing Ideas

Get creative with your pairings! It can be enjoyed with anything from spicy Indian dishes to rich, savoury pâtés. The possibilities are endless and delicious.



What is so special about ice wine?

Ice wine is unique due to its production process and the distinct characteristics it develops. The grapes used for this wine are left on the vines to freeze naturally, concentrating the sugars and flavours, resulting in an intensely sweet and aromatic wine. This labour-intensive process, combined with strict harvesting conditions and limited yields, makes this wine a rare and highly prized delicacy.

Is ice wine available in Australia?

Yes, it is available in Australia, although it is not commonly produced there. Australian winemakers are experimenting with ice wine production, contributing to the global diversity of this luxurious dessert wine. The cooler regions of Australia, such as Tasmania, offer potential for creating high-quality wine.

Why is ice wine so expensive?

Ice wine is expensive due to the meticulous and labour-intensive production process. The grapes must be harvested at precisely the right time when they are naturally frozen, which results in low yields and a high risk of crop loss. Additionally, the production process requires more careful handling and higher labour costs, while the limited quantity of grapes per vine contributes to the wine’s rarity and price.

What does ice wine taste like?

Ice wine is renowned for its intense sweetness, balanced by a vibrant acidity that prevents it from being overly cloying. The flavour profile typically includes notes of tropical fruits, honey, citrus, and stone fruits. The wine’s aroma is equally captivating, with complex notes of ripe fruits, flowers, and honey that evolve as the wine ages. The result is a luxurious and memorable tasting experience.
