Grapes for Ice Wine Riesling are grown in the Selenium Vineyard, located in Yakima Valley, Washington in wind-blown loess on basalt bed rock.
Thanks to a well-timed frost, this Riesling Ice Wine was
harvested on St. Nicolas Day 2013 at 8F. Sourced from
the beautiful Selenium Vineyard in Washington’s Yakima
Valley, the south facing vineyard sits 1,200 feet above sea
level and produces complex Riesling with bright acidity.
The frozen berries were pressed directly and the resulting
concentrated juice was fermented cold with R2 yeasts.
The fermentation was halted at 155 g/L residual sugar
and the wine was aged for an additional 8 months in
tank and 1 year in bottle prior release.

Bouquet: Crystalline aromas of lilac and meyer lemon.
Taste: Meyer lemon with bracing acidity and
rich sugar level.
Alcohol Content: 9%.
