Claim by Brännland Cider 2018

Using the natural winter cold of Northern Sweden we concentrate apple juice on the best Swedish apples and ferment the sweet must into an ice wine, an ice cider, with equal parts fresh apple acidity and warm autumnal apple sweetness.

Claim by Brännland Cider 2018

CLAIM. Claims new territory for ice cider. An ice wine made from 100% Swedish apples, concentrated & elevated using the natural winter cold of northern Sweden. A true & original expression of the country, apples and family of ciders from which it was born. 

Claim evokes lightness and light, spring and summer, rather than the dark, heavy power house of bold autumn and winter flavors which is our traditional ice cider. 

Comments on Claim 2018 by cider maker Andreas Sundgren, 

“Our goal with Claim, beyond showcasing the width of expression of Swedish apples, was to create our equivalent of an Auslese in terms balance and body. The 2017 was fantastic in many ways and we were intensely proud of it as a first outing but it was also based on assumption rather than previous experience. Because of that the 2017 is closer to a semi dry wine. The 2018 is different, it has the same residual sugar as the 2017 but with a slightly lower amount of acidity which menas it is closing in on the expression we will be looking for going forward, a little more body and perceived sweetness without being equivalent on the power house of concentration exhibited by the more voluminous ice ciders in our range.”  

The tasting notes for this year’s vintage was compiled by two of Brännland Cider’s longest standing ambassadors, Per and Lars Åkerlund of Umeå-based fine food purveyors DUÅ.
