Vermont Ice Red has concentrated flavors of blackberry and plum with hints of oak.
A first for Vermont and the world
Vermont Ice Red is a truly groundbreaking wine. It is the first red Ice Wine made in Vermont, and it is the first ever Ice Wine produced from the Frontenac grape variety. The dependable early November freeze-ups at Boyden Valley vineyards allow us to harvest high quality, ripe fruit on the vine with some “noble rot” that magnifies the Frontenac characteristics in Vermont Ice Red. As with all of our ice wines, the cool climate creates an acidity that nicely balances out the sweetness in the final product. We age Vermont Ice Red for six months in French oak barrels, which gives the wine hints of its flavor to go along with concentrated jam flavors of blackberry and plum.
