  • Accidentally in Franconia, Germany where they tried to rescue frozen grapes from the vines. Grown first in Canada in British Columbia in the Okanagan Valley and commercially produced in 1978 by Hainle Vineyards Picking is usually done between 1-6am Press immediately , while still outside in the cold – when finished only grape skins and a block of ice remain
  • Pickers in the early morning at Paradise Ranch
  • Press is outside -- At these temperatures there is no fermentation or bacteria Add pectolytic enzymes to break down grape solids and clarify 1 week to settle juice – stored by the press outside. Racking - Pump the clear juice from the top into 1000L bulk wine totes (4x4x4) Take into warehouse where the controlled air temp is 17-18 C, control the temp with the thermostat and by opening the warehouse doors. Sometimes because concentrated sugars, there are also concentrated acids and you have to de-acidify. Adjust the acids by adding Calcium-Carbonate to the settling tank Fermentation aids : (yeast needs moisture to transport food through its cell walls) strains tolerant of very high sugar levels. Monitor temperature – cooler = more flavour, glycerol – fruit freshness & fruit esters maintained. If too hot lose quality, fruit flavours and aromas – gases bubble out of the liquid. It is critical to carefully monitor fermentation to achieve desired sugar and alcohol level. Desire as much sugar as possible, the higher the alcohol, the less balanced the wine.
  • Wines move to 0 degrees Celsius ‘cool room’ to stop fermentation , allow the fermentation a couple of days to stop Add bentonite for protein stability to reduce the haziness Wines cool/ cold stabilization – minimum 1 month Diatomacidous earth filter Individual fermenters are cross blended because of differences in fermentation character & differences in the yeast strains we use Kept until scheduled bottling – final filter : Sterile pad filters to adjust the sufites Bottling: Wines are warmed & agitated to remove fermentation gas, otherwise excess gas can push the cork in the bottled wines (opposite of champagne)
  • VQA – starting from the vineyard until the cut to guarantee that the wine corresponds to the highest aspirations of the art of the wine making with regard to quality and a guarantee that the wine corresponds to the highest aspirations of the art of the wine making The grapes, juice, must or wine may not be artificially refrigerated at any point in the manufacturing process, except for tank cooling during fermentation and/or during cold stabilization prior to bottling. The finished wine shall have been produced from a must that achieved a computed average of not less than 35 degrees Brix. Icewine shall have a residual sugar at bottling not less than 100 g/L, and the residual sugar and the actual alcohol shall result exclusively from the natural sugar of the grapes. Sweet reserve may not be added.
  • Chardonnay ~ The most internationally acclaimed of our collection with flavors of honey and peach intertwined with tropical fruits. Merlot ~ A rare, red Icewine with a rich strawberry and wild berry palate. Riesling ~ Full-bodied honey & lime tones intermingled with kiwi, pineapple & papaya.
  • Merlot Late Harvest ~ Cherry & wild berry aromas. A full and lively palate with flavors of raspberry and blackberry. Chardonnay/Riesling Late Harvest ~ Flavors of pineapple, pear and apple wrapped around Riesling floral and citrus notes with a clean finish.
