Hopler Eiswein - Burgenland, Austria

eiswein

 

 

 

A unique wine made from fully matured grapes which are left on the vine until they reached a temperature of at least -7°C (19.4°F). The water in the grapes forms ice crystals, and after gentle pressing the remaining concentrate is made into an exceptional wine with elegant sweetness balanced by refreshing acidity. Intense apple aromatics with elegant sweetness balanced by refreshing acidity, hints of honey. Eiswein is a delicious wine to accompany various fruits and pastries but can also be enjoyed on it's own. 100% Grüner Veltliner.
