Eiswein (ice wine) is another of natures rare and wonderful gifts in our area. We hold aside certain plots of vines, hoping for a deep enough freeze (minimum 8° C, or 17° F) to harvest frozen grapes. These grapes are picked in the wee hours of the morning and pressed while they are still frozen, to slowly squeeze out a few drops of precious nectar, leaving the water behind as ice. The result is a vibrant, racy dessert wine that is strikingly different from the rounder, more honeyed style of the wines concentrated by botrytis This estate-grown Dr. Loosen Riesling Eiswein comes from special parcels in Erden and Ürzig that we hold aside every year, hoping that it will freeze before the grapes fall victim to overripeness.
