It takes 2 kilos of pure blueberries to make one 37.5cl bottle of Blue Aurora ice wine. The blueberries themselves are substrate-grown in buckets under polytunnels and then picked by hand between July and October. Once picked, they’re frozen and then pressed hard from frozen. The press programme takes between 2 ½ to 3 days, releasing more juice as the berries start to defrost. The juice is then fermented in a stainless steel tank for around 4 weeks. After fermentation the wine is racked, filtered and bottled.
100% not-from-concentrate blueberry juice, Blue Aurora Blueberry Ice Wine is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Dark berries and red fruits nose with a delicate hint of candied violet and rose petal. The palate is velvety smooth and devilishly pure, with ripe berry notes reminiscent of kirsch or blueberry jam. A refreshing acidity lifts the sweet finish.
Serve lightly chilled. Pairs perfectly with cheese boards, or alongside a rich chocolate dessert, or enjoy added to sparkling wine as an aperitif, or simply on its own as a fantastic digestif.
