Currently, there are two different ways to produce these intense dessert wines-the natural method of harvesting frozen grapes off the vines, and the manipulated method of cryoextraction, where grapes are picked at their normal harvest times and then frozen for use in what is more specifically known as "iced wines." Although the production techniques are similar regardless of the cultivar and origin of the freeze, the resulting wines can be dramatically different.
The arsenal of super-advanced technologies used in the winery include vacuum concentrators, spinning cones (for extracting alcohol without removing volatiles), reverse osmosis machines, cryoextraction (freezing grapes before crushing to enhance sugar concentration), high-tech filters, evaporators, and micro-oxygenation devices.
