La Face Cachée de la Pomme Neige Récolte D'Hiver


Brewer: La Face Cachée de la Pomme
Style: Ice Cider/Ice Perry
Alcohol Content: 8%
Seasonal: No

Description:
Produced since 1994, Neige is the leading inspiration of La Face Cachée de la Pomme. It is the very first ice cider (also known as apple ice wine) to be commercialized in Québec and throughout the world. Neige Récolte d’hiver – produced from a variety of apples that do not fall during the autumn season – is available in a limited edition series of 5866 bottles for the 2007 harvest. Edition 2008 is limited at 10 560 bottles. Picked between December and January, while the temperature was approximately -15°C, the fruits still hanging on trees were dehydrated by the sun and literally cooked by the cold and wind. Sugars were concentrated through natural cryoextraction. Frozen apples were then pressed in order to extract the precious nectar. The extracted must was then placed in stainless steel tanks where it fermented for a period of approximately eight months, at low temperatures, before being bottled. Previously 11% abv. Current vintage (2009) is 8% abv.
