Join us for the annual NYS Ice Wine & Culinary Festival - the largest celebration of traditional Ice Wines made in NYS. Authentic Ice Wines are a challenge to produce and are therefore rare and special. In order to qualify as a true ice wine, the wines must be produced from grapes that have been frozen on the vine. The frozen grapes must be picked and pressed within hours of the first sustained freeze. Because of this labor-intensive and weather-dependent process, very few wineries even attempt to make ice wine. New York is also one of the very few places in the world that has the climate to support traditional ice wine production, thus producing a rich, sweet and smooth wine.

Austrian glassmaker Georg Riedel has unveiled the latest addition to his company's vast collection of fine stemware. The Vinum Extreme Icewine glass is the first crystal designed to optimize the delicacy and nuance of the concentrated, nectarlike wine, made from naturally frozen grapes."It's unbelievable," said Karl Kaiser, winemaker for Inniskillin, Canada's largest ice-wine producer. "It expresses exactly what I think ice wine should be."Nine months ago, Riedel -- at the urging of Inniskillin -- gathered sommeliers and wine experts in Toronto to taste four styles of ice wine in a dozen glasses of different shapes and sizes. The group narrowed the roster down to three types of glasses -- Sauvignon Blanc, Sauternes and Vintage Port -- which they believed best expressed the wines. Riedel then turned the group's notes and preferences into a single prototype.The glass has a wide center and a narrow opening to maximize the fruit aromas, integrate the high acid and rich sugar levels, and highlight the balance of an ice wine. Each glass will retail for $29.50.# # #Learn more about Riedel crystal:Dec. 15, 1999Old Wine in New Glasses, Riedel's Artful Designs and The Riedel DynastyMay 23, 2000

When it comes to drinking icewine, there are a few rules most of which go against traditional wine tasting recommendations. Following the proper sipping techniques will open up the flavors of the icewine and cut the sweetness so you can really enjoy its complexities.

After going on an icewine tasting in Niagara Falls, I learned the proper sipping techniques that actually work. Learning how to drink icewine has completely changed my view of icewine and I hope it opens up your palate, too!

You can enjoy icewine any time of year and pair it with both sweet and savor foods. Before we get into the exact icewine sipping technique, there are a few important elements that need to be discussed:

The tip of your tongue is where your sweetness receptors are located. By avoiding contact, your palate is able to better taste all the other flavors on all other parts of your tongue, making the flavors more dynamic. Letting the other tongue flavor receptors experience the wine without the sweetness allows the other flavors to come forward and not get overpowered by the sweet sensations. Our wine guide even recommended tasting the icewine "in the back of your mouth" to really coat all the flavor receptors on your tongue.

When taking your sip, allow in some air and swish the sip around your palate. Swishing icewine around your mouth with some air really opens up the flavors and coats your palate. When swishing the icewine around, press your tongue firmly to the back of your teeth so it stays out of the way and doesn't activate your sweet receptors.

Holding the sip in your mouth for a few seconds longer will allow the icewine acids to catch up to your palate, completely changing the flavors. It's almost like your sip is a flavor chameleon and the acids change the flavor into something else!

When using these sipping techniques, I absolutely tasted more of icewine's sweet, juicy flavors and toned down sweetness. With every passing second, from the initial sip to the final gulp, I could pick out different ingredient notes during each phase of the sipping experience. I would first taste guava, then the acid on my lingering sip changed the flavor to honey comb, then after I finished my sip my palate was filled with raspberry.

The ultimate icewine flavor pairing is something bold, like buffalo wings. Yes, buffalo wings! I know this sounds a little crazy but hot sauce and blue cheese go perfectly together with icewine, which means buffalo wings with a blue cheese dipping sauce is the ultimate flavor pairing!

I've also heard of people making icewine cocktails and blending the drink with ice (how fitting). If you are thinking of making an icewine cocktail, I would highly recommend a doing half icewine, half Ciroc vodka and blending it together with ice. Ciroc vodka is made from grapes, so it's a match made in icewine cocktail heaven!

Now you know how to drink icewine! I promise, these icewine sipping techniques will change your icewine experience. This style of wine is so flavorful, vibrant, and fruit forward, it would be a disservice to not enjoy it and take it to its highest flavor potential!

The Riedel Vinum Extreme was produced to keep up with the New World intense wine structure and steady improvement of these wines. This required a very specific glass to showcase and highlight the special qualities presented in the most perfect wines from the New World. These wines call for shapes which can "deal" with the concentration and translate the wines message in a perfect way. Vinum Extreme from Riedel combines a dazzling oversized bowl with a unique angular look and an extra-tall stem to create a wine glass that is as beautiful to look at as it is to drink from. The Riedel Vinum Extreme Dessert / Icewine Glasses are made of 24% lead crystal and is designed in the incomparable Riedel style, to emphasize and enhance the flavors of every Dessert / Icewine wine you drink. The Riedel Vinum Extreme Dessert / Icewine Glasses is a set of 4 glasses.

Ice wine is an ultra-rich, super sweet dessert wine made from the intense liquid of naturally frozen grapes. The tradition of making ice wine is well-rooted in Austria and Germany (locally known as "eiswein"); however, Canada has got the current claim to ice wine-making fame, with the majority of the market's ice wine offerings coming from British Columbia and Ontario.

Legend has it that ice wine was discovered by a German winemaker who was away from his vineyard during harvest (never a good idea), and when he returned all of his grapes had been frozen on the vine. Undeterred he carried out the unorthodox harvest as usual and proceeded to press his frozen grapes for fermentation. The result, the first eiswein.

The most common grapes utilized in the making of ice wine are Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Chenin Blanc, and Vidal Blanc - grapes with higher levels of acidity to render the final wine refreshing and not heavy or overly "sticky."

Ice wine is made from grapes that have naturally frozen on the vine, which makes the grapes sweeter.[1]XExpert SourceMurphy PerngWine SpecialistExpert Interview. 15 March 2019. All varieties of ice wine are sweet, dessert wines, though they can be made with different kinds of grapes. Sparkling ice wine is also available, and makes great cocktails. Serve chilled ice wine alone, with semi-sweet desserts, or with spicy or strongly-flavored foods.

Ice wine is perhaps the most underrated but also most special wine out there. Presented in those pretty (and expensive!) tall, thin, sleek bottles, as if ice wine is the little sister of the big boys. But what the heck is it and where is it produced? What does it taste like? Discover this and more in the following guest post all about ice wine.

Ice Wine is a wine made from grapes that are left to freeze naturally on the vine before they are harvested. It has a pleasingly rich, sweet taste boasting aromas and flavors of several ripe tropical fruits such as lychee, papaya, and pineapple, among others.

Wine lovers usually choose between the full-bodied white wine or the extremely sweet red wine. White ice wine is made from white grapes and is typically light gold in color, with tastes of citrus and peach. On the other hand, red ice wine is made from red grapes and is typically pink in color with tastes of dried figs, candy, and berries.

Though ice wine is a dessert itself, it can be served with other desserts as well. The most appropriate accompaniments are creamy sweet desserts such as mousse, and ice-creams, particularly coconut flavor. You could also enjoy white ice wine with fruit-based desserts. Dark chocolate pairs exquisitely well with red ice wine. 041b061a72
