Brännland Pernilla Perle 2017 75cl
This year’s Pernilla Perle differs from earlier years in that it is drier and has a higher profile of apple clarity with more outspoken tannins. 2017 was one of the hardest years for decades for apple growing in Sweden with heavy frost and hail in the spring. As a result, the 2017 harvest has given our cider a rather more austere, yet elegant and more complex style compared to previous vintages. The balance between sugar, alcohol and fruit has been joined by a length that holds great promise for future development and ageing.
Once Upon A Tree The Wonder Ice cider 2015 37.5cl
The juice of handpicked, late harvested Conference and Comice Pears is filtered, frozen and gently thawed to allow the sugars, colour and flavour to be extracted, leaving water behind as ice – a process called cryo-concentration – which concentrates the juice to a potential alcohol of 20–22%.
This juice is fermented using champagne yeast to 10 – 12%ABV over 3 to 4 months. At this stage the ferment is stopped and the resulting product is filtered sterile, bottled and further aged in bottle before release.
Brännland Claim Iscider 2017
Claim Iscider claims new territory for ice cider. An ice wine made from 100% Swedish apples, concentrated and elevated using the natural winter cold of northern Sweden. A true and original expression of the country, its apples and the family of ciders from which it was born.
White flowers on the nose and juicy, sweet, fresh acidity on the finish. Claim evokes lightness and light, spring and summer, in contrast to the flavours and scents of late autumn and winter apples associated with the company’s traditional ice cider.
Whilst holding true to the IsCider methodology, 100% fresh picked Swedish apples, this selection is a journey of discovery. IsCiders traditionally are rich and sweet, naturally produced, however Claim is a revelation. It reveals that delicacy and precision are things of beauty, which show themselves through the apple communicated by fermentation and the application of careful winemaking standards. Whilst this does not conform to the Quebec standards, it does write its own rule book, thus claiming new territory for IsCider.
