Using the natural winter cold of Northern Sweden we concentrate apple juice om 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.
Brännland Iscider Barrel Aged Barrique 2017
Every year Brännland Cider sets apart some of its ice cider for barrel ageing. 12 months on a barrel softens and integrates the high acidity and fresh apples notes with the natural residual sugar to create a deeper, more complex ice cider, darker both in colour as well as on the palate. The 2017 cider was very powerful already at pressing and extraction. The most prominent and powerful wines were both fermented and aged on used 500 litre Austrian oak barrels. The dominant apple variety is Ingrid Marie and the robust vintage of 2017 has deepened and darkened further as a result of the barrel ageing.
Brännland Iscider can be enjoyed on its own, chilled or in the company of desserts & cheeses.
