Default ICE WINE!!

I had never heard of this.

It is wine made from frozen grapes picked in areas where it is 15 degrees or below.

As the winter approaches, winemakers in colder areas of the country such as Michigan, upstate New York and areas of Pennsylvania are adjusting to the weather conditions to prepare to make their unique ice wines.


Ice wines are sweet wines made from frozen grapes that are more expensive due to the meticulous production process.


"Ice wine grapes have to be frozen naturally on the vine," Matt Cassavaugh, winemaker at Casa Larga Vineyards in Fairport, N.Y., said.
This means that grapes intended for ice wines are kept on the vine after harvest for normal wines so they can reach the required temperatures.


Weather regulations by the Canadian Vitners Quality Alliance (VQA) allow ice wine harvesting to occur at a maximum temperature of 17.6 F, said Cassavaugh.


"We are looking for three consecutive days where the temperature does not exceed 17 degrees," Scott Bubb, owner and winegrower for the Seven Mountains Wine Cellars, said.


The grapes are harvested when the temperatures are really low, so that the grapes remain frozen when they are being pressed.

I agree... that's why I prefer a late harvest or sauterne. I have one now from Chile - Sauv Blanc that's just outstanding Hint of citrus and flinty sweetness. perfect with Tarte Tatin , foie gras or cherrios.
