Wine Details

With a rich gold color lightly red, the 2008 Cryomalus has notes of hazelnuts and apricot at the nose. In the mouth, apple and apricot notes mixed with a long and persistent flavour of honey and citrus. The balance between the sugar and the acidity gives a perfect match with cheeses, foie gras and fruity recipes.

Cam Confidential

In short, the product is made much the same way that ice wine is made; however, while grapes are typically left to hang on the vine, ice cider apples are picked in September and then left outdoors to freeze naturally before a gentle pressing and a fifty day, natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The resulting cider is left to sit on the lees for about 4 months before soutirage and bottling. The 2008 vintage Cryomalus is a blend of Macintosh, Empire, Spartan and Lobo apples from 50 year old apple trees in the Saint-Joseph-du-Lac region of Quebec in Canada. More information can be found here at Antolino Brongo.

The wine is best enjoyed out of a traditional dessert wine glass or a pinot noir styled glass with a big bowl and smaller aperture. Try a bottle or two of one of the coolest new “wines” you will ever try, Cryomalus.
