Wine maker notes
Dessert wines from red-skinned grapes - especially Pinot noir - are relatively rare in the world. We produced our first Deglace, almost as an experiment, in 2001. Initially, the wine was created for use at the end of winery dinners. Neither of the two ways in which dessert wines are traditionally produced - using grapes that have been desiccated by Botrytis cinerea (“noble rotĒ), or pressing after the grapes had frozen on the vine - would work for us. A Pinot noir producer would never want Botrytis in its vineyards (it ruins red wines), and we canít remember a fall when a freeze came before the rains of winter. That year, winemaker Dave Paige selected one block of grapes to take to a freezer instead of the winery, and then followed the traditional approach to producing an ice wine. (Well, not entirely traditional. He didnít have to do any of the work in the middle of the night.) Our Deglace dessert wine has a soft pink color produced from contact with the Pinot noir skins. The residual sugars are on the low end as compared to traditional ice wines, resulting in a consistently balanced wine.
