2015 Ice Wine Harvest

Our 2015 harvest began at 9pm on Monday January 4th when the grapes were cold enough, and so were we !

frozen grapes

Our grapes were gently picked by a Gregoir harvester and the great people from Glen Elgin Vineyard Management

Then they are transferred to a tote wagen which takes them out of the vineyard
where they are moved to insulated bins to stay nice and cool while waiting their turn in the press

Pressing is slow and gentle to exact the juice without bitter flavours,
this takes time, 24 hour monitoring and the odd sample

Is it sweet enough ?
VQA Ontario sets the minimum sugar standard for Ice Wine at 36 brix. This sample is registering just over 40
