Ice Wine

Definition: Ice Wine


Ice Wine
A type of dessert wine that is made with frozen grapes. The grapes are picked and pressed when frozen and only the grape juice is used in the wine making process. The majority of the water is frozen so the pressed grape juice is highly concentrated resulting in a very sweet wine. Since they have consistent cold weather, the best ice wines come from Germany, Austria, and Canada.

i really like this wine - but i've only ever tried it at wine tastings as ice wine is REALLY expensive and i'm just not rich enough to spend that kind of money on alcohol!!! one day maybe :)

Sounds tasty. I like to freeze fruit and use it to keep my wine chilled.

Oooo, a friend of mine bought back a bottle for me when he went to Germany. I'm normally not a big fan of wine, but I loved this one.
