The 2020 Riesling Ice Princess is made from the meticulously farmed and tended Monksgate Vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton. The passion for Riesling and the care and attention to detail in the vineyard shows in the multitude of layers, depth and richness of this wine. The fruit as whole clusters is taken straight from the vineyard to cold storage where it is frozen for four to five weeks, after which it is immediately pressed very slowly over the course of several days, producing an intensely concentrated, aromatic and layered dessert wine. Bright acidity balances the sweetness making this both refreshing on its own terms, or as a companion to both the sweet and savory. Time in the bottle will reward.
