Aged in oak casks this apple ice wine has beautiful notes of vanilla. Didnt seem vastly different from the Neige, which is $5 cheaper though.
appearance: clear bright of medium intensity golden color with luscious legs at the bowl nose: clean with medium (+) intensity, developping. aromas of apple skins, orange blossom, honey, with medicinal characteristics reminding one of a spirit rather than a sweet wine palate: sweet with medium acidity and medium alcohol level. a medium (-) body with medium (+) intensity of orange blossom, honey, apricot, ripe apple, pinapples. a complex, fresh, and luscious palate with a long finish and watery freshness that calls for another sip. conclusion: good: a fine balance between acidity, flavours, and alcohol level. a very refreshing wine which shows smoothness and complexity of flavours. a very surprising discovery considering that it is made from frozen apples and not from grapes. definitely to look for.
Smells of crushed end of season slightly fermented apples (i'm aware thats exactly what it is). Intense rich cider nose. Deep golden hue. Green crisp tartness, apples throughout, very oily. Interesting and worth trying.
I've never had a wine made from apples - totally unique! Very sweet, cider like taste, slightly nutty. Good, but serve very cold to mute the sweetness a little.
Searing acidity, with very nice sweet fruits. Rich luxurious mouth feel with a fresh lively finish. Green apples, granny smiths throughout
