The Riesling and Gewürztraminer for this delectable wine were sourced from a high altitude vineyard in the Victorian Alps. 
The grapes were picked and pressed and the resulting juice was then frozen solid. This frozen mass was allowed to slowly thaw liberating a thick sugary liquor. We were not even sure it would ferment because of the high levels of natural sugar. 
This liquor was transferred to barrels where fortunately it began a natural slow fermentation that continued for 8 months.  The final wine has a delectable 150 g/L residual sugar with 11.5 % alcohol. 
This is a gorgeous sweet complex wine, one that we really enjoyed making.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
