Pinot Noir Eiswein 2018
Requiring perfect conditions in order to make it, icewine is one of the rarest styles of wine on the planet. When it comes to a white version made using one of the world’s most temperamental red grapes, well, you’re more likely to see a unicorn wearing lederhosen.
That’s why we’re so excited to introduce Friedrich Becker’s Pinot Noir Eiswein 2018. To make icewine, the grapes are left to freeze on the vine so that the water can be separated from the sugars before fermentation, resulting in a sweet wine with an unbelievable fresh-fruit clarity. To do all this in such a delicate manner so as not to remove any of the colour from the skins of the grapes, takes great mastery. Luckily the Becker family are experts.
Exclusive to Harvey Nichols, this golden wine is so fresh, it tastes like the juice was squeezed from the grapes yesterday. Pair its flavours of candied orchard fruits, strawberry sorbet, frozen raspberries, spring flowers and blood orange marmalade with a cheeseboard, mushroom pâté, cheesecake, creamy desserts or white chocolate.
Protected by the neighbouring forest, the Becker family have grown fruit and raised animals on this outstanding farm in Pfalz, Germany, for many generations. In 1973, Friedrich Becker Senior stuck the first label bearing a fox on their wine. This has become a symbol of the highest quality ever since, particularly for their Pinot Noir.£10 per 100.00ml
