Heinz Eifel Eiswein 2016 benefitted from a slow harvest with cold nights in November, allowing the mature grapes on the vine to freeze overnight. The frozen grapes are then pressed before they thaw, yielding the sweetest juice from the fruit due to its low freezing point.
“In 2016 we were lucky to have healthy grapes that remained on the vine until the weather was cold enough to freeze,” said winemaker Anne Eifel. “Weather can make or break a crop, and a unique 2016 harvest with favorable conditions late in the growing season created a very pleasant Eiswein.”
The Eiswein is highly concentrated with intense aromas of honey, apricots, yellow apple and passion fruit. The wine has a perfect balance between acidity and natural residual sugar and can be aged for many years or opened now to pair with fruit desserts or as dessert on its own.
