Pacific Rim pick the Vin de Glaciere Riesling grapes around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. The grapes are then frozen. They press the grapes frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half the regular yield). The concentrated juice is fermented until they reach 16% Residual Sugar.
The wine shows loads of pear, and some hone and horseradish. On the palte, the wine is surprisingly light and aromatic but not syrupy or heavy – this has to do with the great acidity (0.88%) in the wine. The 10.4% Ethanol makes the wine very refreshing and quite food friendly.
