Joseph Phelps Eisrebe Napa Valley 2010
The availability of this product is limited and subject to change.<br/><br/>The Scheurebe has delicate aromas of apricot, candied pineapple and orange blossom. Characteristics of crushed rock and honey meld along with balanced acidity and a viscous texture lend to the long-lasting and refreshing finish. This wine's balance, sugar level and low alcohol combine for a long, graceful aging highlighted by intense stone fruit and layers of caramel.
External Reviews for Joseph Phelps Eisrebe Napa Valley
In 1994, the desire to produce an ice wine, or Eiswein, as it is called in Germany, prompted Joseph Phelps Vineyards to adopt a unique program whereby Scheurebe grapes would be picked late in the season and then frozen, thus concentrating their high sugar levels. The resulting wine was called Eisr be, a play on the German words Eis (ice) and Rebe (vine).
