    It's a distiller's term. All spirits start out the same way...as a fermented wash derived from sugar either from cane/beet or converted from grain starches like corn, barley, etc.

    The wash is distilled once and produces a distillate of higher alcoholic content. This distillate is referred to as "low wines" One of two things can be done here. The low wines can be redistilled a second time, resulting in "high wines" which can be kept, casked, and aged accordingly. They can also be run through a reflux column (many multiple distillatons in one still) to produce neutral spirit such as everclear or vodka.

    I've never heard this term and I'm wondering if you could have misunderstood something that someone said. The closest term I can think of to that (auditorily) would be "Ice Wine" which is described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_wine
