Weather conditions fell to 7 degrees Fahrenheit and the grapes were allowed to freeze on the vine before harvesting. The frozen grapes were pressed over many hours in order to squeeze out the juice that was measured at 38 degrees brix. The wine was fermented to 12 percent alcohol and then stopped leaving 20% sugar in the wine.
