Ice cider is a non-sparkling wine, obtained by the concentration of sugars contained in the apple by the cold, as well as a very slow fermentation of apple juice, which allows to release all the aromas of the fruit, even the more subtle.

Inspired by icewine, ice cider presents its particularities if only because an apple and a grape are two very different fruits. When it comes to icewine, the grapes are harvested frozen on the vine. During the autumn, the grapes dehydrate so that they contain little juice at the time of the harvest, in winter, but this one is concentrated and very sweet. The grapes are then pressed frozen and the juice is fermented. The procedure is similar with apples to give Ice Cider.
By freezing, the water contained in the apple separates sugars which allows us to recover the juice with the highest concentration of sugar. The juice then ferments for one month in steel vats.
It takes about 50 apples or 5 kilograms to make a bottle of 375 ml ice cider. Although very sweet, no sugar is added; it is only the action of the cold, hence the name of ice cider.
Bottle: 37.5 cl
