The Müenzenrieder vine-growing estate lies in the Neusiedlersee/ Seewinkel national park. Through natural cultivation methods, rigorous harvest scrutiny, and controlled cellar operations, winegrowers Johann and Johannes Müenzenrieder produce potent wines marked with regional characteristics and tremendous intensity. The special microclimate of the sun drenched Seewinkel area allows for fruitful, fresh white wines and dense, robust red wines to flourish. This icewine is made from Grüner Veltliner and Welschriesling. It is made traditionally by allowing the grapes to freeze on the vine. The water in the grapes is frozen so that when they're pressed the runoff is very concentrated and thus very sweet.
Icewine is a classic combination to puddings, traditional sweet Salzburg “Nockerl” dumplings, and other Austrian desserts. Also great with bleu cheese, foie gras, or a fine cigar.
