ICE WINE (Canada)

ICE WINE (Canada)

A true ice wine can only be made from grapes that have naturally frozen on the vine and are picked when the thermometre dips to -8ºC of lower.

This method of picking means the wine is extra sweet with its gold liquid being high in natural sugars and acidity.

How to make it at home.

1. Alow grapes to freeze naturally (alternatively you can freeze grapes in the freezer, but this will be called 'icebox wine').

2. Press the juice out of the grapes before they defrost.

3. The Homemade Wine Making Guide reveals that you will then need to let the grape juice ferment as you would for a normal wine.

A very original way of drinking wine!
