In 1994, the desire to produce an “ice wine,” or Eiswein, as it is called in Germany, prompted Joseph Phelps Vineyards to adopt a unique program whereby Scheurebe grapes would be picked late in the season and then frozen, thus concentrating their high sugar levels.

Product description

Harvest Date: September 10, 2015.
Blend: 100% estate-grown Scheurebe from our Home Ranch Vineyard in St. Helena.
Winemaking Notes: One of the few Scheurebe plantings in California, the grapes were handpicked and frozen to -5°F followed by a partial thawing before a long, gentle pressing. The juice was fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature to retain the delicate aromatics of this variety. Floral aromas of honeysuckle, gardenia, stone fruit and orange peel dominate the subtle jasmine spice. This wine is filled with dried apricot, chamomile tea, Meyer lemon and juicy Fuji apple wrapped in a ribbon of sweet honey. Elegantly structured with viscous texture and a tangy saline note followed by a luscious citrus finish.
Growing Season: Low yields of high quality fruit with intensely concentrated flavors are hallmarks of this vintage.
