From the Rheingau's prolific state domaine, this eiswein may sound a bit unusual but at one time was made very regularly in vintages where eiswein was possible. The Assmannshäuser Höllenberg is a renowned Pinot Noir vineyard in a warmer, west-facing section of the region. When temperatures reach -6 degrees celcius, grapes left on the vine can be pressed frozen to extract the sweet nectar, and the red pigment from the Pinot Noir skins is left behind in the frozen grapes along with most of the water. What is produced is a sweet white wine with perhaps as much color as a blanc de noirs Champagne.
