Icecrystal is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, exquisite, sweet, red dessert wine from the Hajos-Baja wine region, a real gem by Pieroth Wines.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widespread red wine grape varieties in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon very popular as it is a dark, and thick skinned grape variety that produces full bodied and intense red wines, with great ageing potentials.
The grapes for this specialty ice wine are harvested at dawn in November always under frosty conditions of at least – 4C or less. The frozen berries are then pressed for a highly concentrated sweet and rich grape juice (called ‘must’ in Hungarian). Late harvesting in freezing conditions is how the highest concentration of natural grape sugars can be extracted from the grapes.
Such special procedure results in a stunning, extract-rich, sweet, red dessert wine with defined fragrance reminiscent of cassis. This unique ice wine shines through the glass in deep ruby red colour. It showcases rich and fruity notes of cherry, red berries, cranberry, and a touch of marzipan on the palate, with gentle tannins to round it all. Soft and velvety finish that follows. Unlike any other sweet red wines, Icecrystal is such an easy drink with elegance, a real delicacy after dinner.
This ice wine is recommended to serve cold, to be enjoyed on its own, or to accompany a cheese board, or light, fruity desserts.
