Limited edition ice ciders from Brännland Cider.
Brännland Isicder PLEX 2017
Built on the apple varieties Ingrid Marie, Kim, Aroma, Belle De Boskoop and Cox Orange, the 2017 PLEX iscider was concentrated using the matural cold of our northern landscape, fermented slowly in the spring of 2018 and was then aged on a small 114 liter oak barrel, made from Transylvanian oak.
Brännland Iscider PLEX 2017 is an ice cider that balances depth and weight with dark Caribbean sweetness and taut apple acidity.
Tasting notes by Petter Alexis Askergren
- Dark red golden. Much higher concentration than previous vintages, moving towards really caramelized sugar.
- Red apples with notes of stone fruit, clear bold nose of honey and ripe heavy fruit. Chesterfield leather and English marmalade.
- Big, bold with avec-like character. Thorough backbone and body. Heavy, sweet late winter apples. Long rounded finish where the acidity is well integrated with the sweetness. Apricot and honey.
