    it's a clean, intense dessert wine style perfectly suited to soft, runny cheeses.

      the traditional method for making i swine involves growing the grapes somewhere where it gets freezing cold. the grapes par-freeze on the vine and are picked in this semi-frozen state. squeezing them at this time results in a sweet, syrupy juice. we have found we can mimic this effect to some extent using reverse osmosis techniques.
