The Eiswein Cometh

The grapes for this sweet German Riesling are harvested early in the morning around Christmas when temperatures drop to as low as minus eight degrees near the Rhine in western Germany.
I love sweet pudding wines like Sauternes. But what is magical about this Eiswein is the combination of sweetness with a refreshing fruitiness that almost sparkles on the palate. Like ice.
