Mosel’s Markus Molitor: why “making Eiswein is like waiting for Christmas”

Mosel’s Markus Molitor: why “making Eiswein is like waiting for Christmas”

Every wine culture has its moments of magic, but few can eclipse the excitement of making Eiswein. Pickers must get to the vineyard in the middle of the night where, at temperatures no more than -7°C, frozen grapes are picked until the sun rises then rushed to the winery for a gentle press. This January, Markus Molitor made an Eiswein, one of 80 wines he produces, an event which is becoming more and more rare as climate change starts to take its toll. Peter Dean talks to him about this special event and whether the wine is worth all the hassle.

When It’s Cold Outside, Ice Wines Are The Antidote To Drink Inside

When It’s Cold Outside, Ice Wines Are The Antidote To Drink Inside

The story goes that ice wines were discovered by accident when a German baron left his estate one summer’s day for one war or another, neglecting to tell his peasants to pick the grapes and make wine in the fall. When he returned he found the peasants—who never did anything they weren’t told to do—neither picked the grapes nor made wine, leaving the fruit on the vine to freeze. Quite literally plucking victory from the vines of defeat, the baron found that the grapes had continued to grow ripe with sugar, which was intensified by the freeze that dehydrated them, so that when they were pressed, they gave up very little juice but spectacularly good, intensely sweet white wine, which in German is eiswein.

MADE IN TERRASSENMOSEL: SARAH LÖWENSTEIN OF WEINGUT HEYMANN-LÖWENSTEIN

MADE IN TERRASSENMOSEL: SARAH LÖWENSTEIN OF WEINGUT HEYMANN-LÖWENSTEIN

The hills surrounding the Moselle River constitute Germany’s oldest winegrowing region, and its steepest. What some still call Lower Moselle, near the French border, is now more often referred to as Terrassenmosel, or the terraced Moselle, in recognition of the characteristic terraces cut into the steeply inclined banks, which give the hills the appearance of grassy pyramids. Locals have been cultivating grapes here since at least Roman times, and the landscape is still studded with picturesque, gothic castles in various states of disrepair, which peer out protectively over the river valley.
