The Ice Cider is made in the smallest batches possible, 12 bottles at a time. The small batch sizes make this a premium and unique experience every time. The slightly increased acidity allows it to appeal to those that may not usually favour a dessert wine, while remaining sweet and smooth enough for those that do. The flavour is more apple than any apple you have eaten with a smooth sweetness similarities to honey and Vino Passito
Each bottle can require around 100 apples to produce. The method I am using to extract the concentrated juices leads to a more genuine, fresh apple flavour. This is through the retention of more acids, rather than the more caramelized flavours I have found with other ice ciders.
Each batch of the 2020 Ice Cider is made of a single apple variety, and they have been aged for a full year before bottling. These wines can vary from batch to batch due to the nature of the cryo-extraction and fermentation at a high initial sugar content, making each one a rare and unique experience.
