COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Characteristics
- Unparelled richness
- Inimitable complexity... made from a blend of many apple varieties, including rare heritage apples
- Warm caramel and baked apple flavour
- Made in limited quantities... each bottle is uniquely numbered and hand-signed
- A naturally made ice cider... without added sugar or alcohol

Serving Suggestions
Due to its richness and concentration of flavours, we recommend serving Signature on its own, as a digestif. It also pairs exceptionally well with blue-veined or aged cheese and orchard fruit or nut-based desserts.

Darker copper-golden liquid. Old, wrinkled apples, full of sugars from last summer. Sweet apples with just a hint of sourishness in the mouth. Touches of old sherry, if sweeter. Viscous, oily, oozing alcohol. Another excellent cidre de glace. Thanks to Dany for bringing me another of these rare gems.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94 on 7/3/09: Pours a transparent viscous orange amber with nice thick legs. Has a fresh fruity apple nose with a good balance of crisp tartness with a hint of oak. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramely apples with a great tart balance before a crisp sweettart finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable with good complexity throughout.

BQ2010. Sampled in the Domaine Pinnacle Tasting Room. Pours a clear body resembling apple juice. Aroma is sweeter than the original ice cider. Flavor is amazing - incredible mouthfeel. Sweet apples, candy, fruit, and caramel. Tried with crackers, cheese, and onion jam. Delicious.

375mL bottle shared by puzzl, thanks Andy, poured into a copita glass. Pours a very light copper color. Aroma is very earthy apple and a very woody apple. Taste is perfectly sweet, not too little not too much, with a nicely syrupy yet light mouthfeel. Its cider, what the hell else can I say about it? There is not alcohol flavor but an alcohol heft to it. The mouthfeel is very original for the ice ciders that I have tried.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle 1425/5000 shared by puzzl. Mmm, mmm, I loves me some ice cider. Deep golden colour. Aroma is just loaded with concentrated, honey-laden apple and a soft sweet cinnamony spiciness. Really intensely fruity with lots of apple, a touch of tartness and even a bit of maple and brown sugar along the back. Sweet/tart, fruity and complex... awesome stuff.
