Break the ice with this
small-batch ice cider! Ice cider is a unique dessert wine made from
cryo-extraction techniques similar to ice wine. It is intensely
rich in natural apple flavor, high viscosity, smooth texture, clean
acidity, balanced structure and long finish. The braeburn apples
supply acidity and natural tannins for structure.
Like a fine Sauternes,
this ice cider is a supremely pleasurable wine, and one that needs
no excuse or pairing for opening a bottle: You can just open it for
the sheer pleasure of the thing. (Although it is brilliant when
paired with blue cheese!). Serve with buttery desserts, spicy
sausages, patès, foie gras and artisan cheeses.
Comes in a 375 ml bottle
with hand-dipped white wax, perfect for gift giving.

I picked this up at the former HRTH wine house in Spokane - the Nectar Room - and was not disappointed. I paired it with an amazing Italian bleu cheese and it was fantastic.It really is like an apple Saturne!

This wine, made from apples, is just incredible. I'm not a wine expert, so pardon the naming wrongishness ;-)Serve very chilled, I take mine from the freezer. If it happens to freeze into a slush, try it...it's amazing! And harder to pour.Be prepared, and tell your friends this: the first taste can only be described as POWERFUL. It pretty much literally grabs your mouth and excites every single taste bud on your tongue, and some on your gums you didn't even know you had! Amazingly smooth tart-flavor without the astringence normally associated with strong tartness, and with sweet and strong--but not harsh--fruit flavor. You know the flavor is apples, but there are hints of apricot and other things in there. Your overwhelmed taste buds will be squirming around, laughing themselves silly on your tongue.Because of the concentrated intensity, even a tiny sip will fill your mouth with flavor. But what that really means is that larger sips, and definitely gulps, will not get you more flavor, and it won't last longer. So small sips are best, with some air in the mouth to really get the flavors and smells working.As your mouth gets used to it and the intensity slackens, it continues to excite the palette with waves of intense apple-cider flavors, including caramel, and a bit of woodsiness. Awesome, hugely powerful, intense and yet sublime, well-layered and delicate flavors throughout. Mmmm.......The only problem I had with this wine was the finish...oh, it so made me want more! You start to really WANT this flavor, and feeling it fade in your mouth will fill your heart with true disappointment that there aren't even drops left in the glass. The flavor tails off slowly and smoothly, and you'll feel a smile coming to your lips as the intensity fades. Wonderful stuff.I've heard that over ice cream it's good; I wasn't impressed, but maybe we made it wrong? LOL.Even the remote memory of your last sip of Ice Breaker will prod your row to Point Lovely!
