Killahora Orchards Rare Apple Ice Wine 2018 375ml


Republic of Ireland

Description

Made from rare and bittersweet apples mostly grown in Killahora’s own 200 year old orchards on the Atlantic south coast of Ireland. Freezing the pressed juice results in a beautiful, rich must is slowly fermented to give a luscious, balanced, dessert apple wine, with additional depth from the layers of soft tannins from the bittersweet cider apples.

The 2018 vintage is particularly special because of the hot summer which created record sugar content at pressing and this bottling carries more vibrant fruit notes. We believe that this vintage will age well.

Nothing is rushed at Killahora Orchards: the fruit is hand-picked and this perry is made in small batches, then allowed to ferment and mature which creates complexity and real nuances of flavour.

Tasting Notes

Deep, golden colour with good clarity. A nose with notes of strawberry, honey, candied orange peel and a light floral aroma. The palate shows a silky viscosity, with notes of fresh green apple and butterscotch. Long finish with a crisp lift, and complex notes of barrel- aged cider.

Food Pairing

Serve lightly chilled with a cheeseboard – our favourite cheese pairing is a creamy goat’s cheese which cuts through the wine’s sweetness and acidity perfectly.  It also works well with many desserts such as panna cotta or tarte tatin, and pairs beautifully with foie gras or rich pork dishes.
