Forbidden Fruit Dessert Wine - Pomme Desiree Iced Apple (Organic) - Best of Class and Gold Medal! / 90 Points by John Schreiner!A white wine made from 100% organically grown Similkameen Valley apples. A unique blend of 6 different apple varieties. The ripe fruit is picked in the fall, gently pressed, and then frozen. The hand crafted fruit juice then is put through a process called cryo extraction. A method that is able to capture natural concentrates of a ripe sweet apple.Aromas: The wine has a heady aroma of candy apple, caramel and tropical fruit.
Palate: The wine, like the fruit fully expresses the natural sweetness of the apple varietals with lingering layers of cinnamon, butterscotch, pineapple and caramelized apples on the finish.
Accompaniment: Fruit tarts, pumpkin pie or apple pie with caramel sauce, angel food cake, creme caramel, cheese souffle, roasted duck, goose, turkey, strong cheddar, brick, swiss, strong gouda, and blue cheese.
Serve: Slightly chilled. Wonderful on its own.
