Winemaker Nicolas Quillé Notes
We pick the Vin de Glacière Riesling grapes around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. the grapes are then frozen. We press the grapes frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half the regular yield). the concentrated juice is fermented until we reach 16% Residual Sugar. the wine shows loads of pear, and some honey and horseradish. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly light and aromatic but not syrupy or heavy—this has to do with the great acidity (0.88%)in the wine. the 10.4% Ethanol makes the wine very refreshing and quite food friendly.
