Best Icewine Wine

Icewine is produced when grapes are left on the vine well past the regular harvest into the cold winter months. These grapes are picked at -8 degree Celsius or 18 degrees Farenheit and then pressed while still frozen.

Canada and Germany are most famous for this dessert wine. In Canada, it's called icewine whereas in Germany it's eiswein.

Canadian vintners use both the vidal and riesling grapes while Germany uses mostly riesling, which has more balancing acidity for this sweet wine. This wine has a medium to full body, with a long finish and surprisingly low alcohol of, on average, just 10%.

My reviews of these Icewines are updated weekly. These Icewine wines offer great taste at a good price. You'll find a definition of Icewine at the bottom of this page as well as food pairings for Icewine in my wine matcher. This is just a small set of my reviews, but you can get all of them when you join my wine community.

The aromas include tropical fruit such as pineapple, mango, melon, apricot, lychee as well as honey.

Icewine is especially lovely with fruit-based desserts, biscotti, foie gras, cheeses and dishes with a touch of sweetness such as glazed ham.
