This sweet Austrian Eiswein (Icewine) from Weingut Hiedler uses Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) grapes that are harvested at temperatures of at least −7 °C in winter months. During the long pressing process, the frozen berries yield the smallest amounts of an ice-cold concentrate. Slow fermentation takes place in stainless steel over several months, with further months on fine lees.
The result is a fine and elegant dessert wine whose focused acidity creates a juicy contrast to the natural sweetness. Enormous aromas show a mixture of tropical fruit scents such as lychee and pineapple, alongside ripe apricot and peach. The mature and creamy palate has great depth. Sumptuous, powerful and focused. Try with fruity desserts or blue cheese.
Austria's Hiedler family have been winemaking for over 160 years and use their dedication to craftsmanship to vinify timeless, personal wines that tell the story of their origin. Based in their hometown of Langenlois in the Kamptal Valley, their centuries-old vineyards benefit from alpine loess and metamorphic rock soils.
