Black Knight Sylvaner Ice Wine

For fans of sweet wines, Ice wines are an absolute must. Extremely sweet, intense and elegant, they satisfy even the most demanding palates. This is the case of this Black Knight, obtained from the processing of frozen bunches - harvested late, at the beginning of the winter season - of Sylvaner grapes. In the glass it has a beautiful straw yellow colour. Notes of honey, dehydrated fruit and caramelized apricot on the nose. The bouquet, particularly complex in this case, is completed with hints of vanilla and caramel that derive from the wise use of wood during maturation. In the mouth it is sweet, concentrated and above all infinitely long. A wonderful wine for meditation or to pair with intensely flavoured desserts.

The history of the Kitzer Winery goes back as far as 1736. Today it is run with passion and competence by Hans-Friedrich Kitzer with the help of his three sons. The winery is located in Badenheim, a charming village in the western part of Rheinhessen. Here, the different soils allow the cultivation of a wide variety of vines from which come excellent wines, especially white, with an unmistakable style. In the winery, the experience of Hans-Friedrich and his sons allows the grapes and musts to be processed with delicate techniques, respecting the characteristics of the individual varieties.

Technical Data Sheet

CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeSweet Still White Wine
  • Location Germany
  • Grapes Silvaner
  • Sensations Extremely sweet, intense and elegant. Ice wines inebriate with their aromatic spectrum ranging from honey to apricot, from citric and exotic notes to mineral, vanilla and freshly baked bread. The sweetness is counterbalanced by a distinct acidity: the taste is thus deep and very fresh.
  • Vinification This wine is obtained from the fermentation of frozen grapes, harvested late at the beginning of the winter season, when the temperature drops below -8 ?C. White grapes such as Riesling and Vidal, typical of Canadian production, but also Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Gewurztraminer are used to make it. Red grapes such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir are also used, and freezing the berries favours the concentration of sugars, acids and aromatic substances. Harvesting should be carried out as quickly as possible to stop the grapes thawing. The high concentration of sugars, generally between 180 and 320 grams per litre, means that fermentation of the must is very slow and can last up to several months.
