Ice Wine demands certain temperatures, roughly 6 hours of 12-18F. Too cold and the grapes are too frozen to press, too warm and none of the water stays frozen inside of the berry, so no concentration occurs. An uncommonly cold night 11/12/19 into morning of 11/13/19 allowed the 2019 harvest crew to make the first Hosmer Winery Ice Wine in nearly two decades. A rich concentration of tangelo and mandarin rind open the nose. The midpalate is a balancing act of red raspberry and tangerine pith. The finish is both a rich and tight expression of citrus carried by the opulence of a honeyed dessert Riesling.
