Ice cider, sweet dessert. This is ice wine made from apples. We allow the juice from late harvest apples to freeze during the winter. As the juice freezes and thaws, a concentrated portion collects in the center. We ferment this nectar partially, saving the natural apple sugars to make this a dessert cider. Essence is replete with flavors of honey, caramel, apricot jam and juicy apples. The 15% residual sugar is balanced by a lively tartness. This ice cider is impressive as dessert itself but can be spectacular paired with sweets such as crust-less Italian cheesecake, creme caramel or homemade cinnamon doughnuts.
