Icewine is the result of juice from grapes frozen and harvested at temperatures between -8 and -12C for at least eight consecutive hours. Freezing concentrates the juice and its sugars to a drop of liquid gold in the centre of the grape. Icewine was first bottled in Germany as Eiswein. However, Canadian winters are ideal for producing icewine and Nova Scotia is unparalleled.
