Natalie's Score: 87/100

Ice cider is made in a very similar way as Icewine is, except cider is apple-based and icewine is grape-based. For this cuvée of blend of cider, the cidery used a mix of frozen Russet, Ida Red and Spy apples have been pressed to produce a sweet and concentrated juice. This is then fermented to create this luscious cider. Gorgeous apple goodness: your mouth waters even smelling this terrific cider. Good balance. It's better than pie in a glass. and would pair nicely with caramel desserts, apple pie or pan-fried foie gras.

Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Nutty / appley / earthy / sherry-like / medium sweet with substantial acidity to balance.

A cheese board with some kind of apple compote. La Sauvagine should be included in this mix!
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made from: Russet, Ida Red and Northern Spy apples. This ice cider is a great finisher to a good meal. Medium+ aromas and palate with good mouth-feel.
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

June 22, 2014: Medium copper with a nose of bruised apples, floral/blossom and spice cupboard. The palate is sweet with ripe apple and spice but an edginess and a bitter note that takes away a bit. A little disappointing compared to some excellent bottles in past years. A nice pairing with apple strudel.
Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A cider with a sherry-like tendency. the oxidized apple aromas are accompanied by a bit of earthiness and some caramel. The finish is also a bit dry sherry-like.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Sherry-like nuttiness overpowers this wine. Tones of applesauce and butterscotch. Creme brulee might make a good partner.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

An iced ceder from Ontario's Prince Edward County. Very mild sweet apple aromas and apalate showing sweet apples and hint of spice.
Try with caramel apple pie.
