Food Pairings for Joseph Phelps Eisrebe Napa Valley
"The 2011 Eisrébe has aromatic layers of honey, apricot, marmalade and tropical fruits. The texture is viscous with flavors of peach, lemon meringue and vanilla crème brûlée that tie in perfectly with the fresh, bright and lingering palate. 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 “Eisrébe,” a play on the German words Eis (ice) and Rebe (vine). Although German Eiswiens are produced from fruit that is actually picked frozen on the vine, we found that by freezing the grapes ourselves we could fashion a delicious dessert wine that is viscous and smooth, with excellent acidity to balance the sweetness." -Winery
