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 Barrique 2016
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 2016 ice cider was characterised by very high levels of acidity. 12 months of barrel ageing has balanced the acidity and the sugar. To round out and integrate the ice cider further we’ve used a mix between used 225 litre french oak barriques and 500 litres new and used to create a deep, balanced ice cider. Brännland Iscider can be enjoyed on its own, chilled or in the company of desserts & cheeses.
