Argentina Puts Wine On Ice
An Argentine winery is putting the chill on one of their wines . Viña Las Perdices is coming out with Las Perdices Ice, a sweet Malbec from Mendoza. The wine is not a traditional ice wine.. Instead of waiting until the grapes freeze on the vine and then harvesting (the way the wine is made in Canada and certain chilly parts of the U.S.), this wine is made through cryoextraction which involves freezing the grapes with refrigeration and pressing them while they are still frozen. Decanter reports that the wine will be made available in three American states, as well as Brazil and Columbia. For the first two vintages, 10,000 bottles were made.
