Chateau Des Charmes Riesling NV Niagara Icewine 37.5cl
Ice wine is a particularly decadent style of sweet wine, in which the grapes are left of their vines for an extended period of time, well into the winter, and are only picked - by hand and in the middle of the night - after a suitable period of constant cold temperatures. The water content within the grapes thus freezes and the grapes are carefully pressed shortly after picking to draw only the sweet sugary pulp.
This wine from Chateau Des Charmes in the Canadian VQA of Niagara Peninsula, was made exclusively from Riesling grapes. Unusually however, no vintage statement is declared on this bottle.
