Eiswein (“Ice Wine”), is the 5th highest of the German QmP (Qualitätswein mit Prädikat – Quality wine with special distinction or attributes) wine scale. Eisweins have the same intensity as Beerenauslese wines but are made only from grapes which were harvested and pressed while still frozen. Ice Wines are truly unique and are remarkable for their concentration of fruity acidity and sweetness.
