Ice Apple Wine is an all-natural Canadian product made from frozen apples – not grapes – and can be drunk as an aperitif or with a wide range of foods. The Summit Selection range is made using apples from near the summit of Pinnacle Mountain, one of the highest producing orchards in Quebec, Canada. A blend of six varieties of frozen apples, including Cortland and Empire, are picked exclusively for use in its production, creating a concentration and depth of flavour that is different from the domestic version.
With over 90 apples used to produce each bottle, there's no question as to what the dominating fruit character is here. Intriguing and complex with a hint of ripe apples cloaked in notes of citrus, candied tropical fruits and marzipan. Full and round in the mouth with notes of warm baked apples, dried papaya and caramel. Rich and intense, with great length on the palate. The fine bubbles contribute to a light, clean finish.
