Wine Spectator 92 points - Sweet, polished, focused and expressive, playing the grapefruit, pear and spice flavors against bracing acidity. This avoids being cloying, and persists harmoniously. Delicious now, but should deepen with cellaring. Drink now through 2025.-H.S. (Mar 4 2015)

Wine maker notes
Our Vin de Glaciere is sourced from our Wallula Vineyard which sits on ridge soaring 1,000 feet above the Columbia River. Because the vineyard is farmed with the highest sustainable standards, the wine beautifully portrays the characteristics of this unique piece of land in Washington State’s Columbia Valley. We pick the Vin de Glaciere Riesling grapes around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. The grapes are then frozen and pressed frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half our yield from non-frozen grapes). The concentrated juice is fermented until we reach 16.1% Residual Sugar. The wine’s aromatics portray an abundance of pear, jasmine and honey. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly light and aromatic but not cloying or syrupy — this has to do with the balanced acidity (1.01%) in the wine. The 8.9% alcohol makes the wine refreshing and quite food friendly.

Looking out the back door of Philippe and Corrine Ehrhart’s cave you have a noble view. This small estate of 20 hectares is located in the village of Wettolsheim, which backs up to the vineyards of Steingrubler, Rosenberg, Hengst, Herrenweg and Brand. The Ehrhart family committed themselves to organic farming 2 generations ago and the wines are all certified organic. Most of the work is done by family members by hand and the wines show wonderful purity and elegance. Each block is vinified separately and the wines rest on their lees for up to 6 months before bottling.
