Natalie's Score: 91/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Pretty copper-orange colour. Lively aromas of apple-cinnamon, poached pear and peach, and a hint of yellow plum. Medium-sweet with very good fresh/racy centre bringing fine balance. Medium-full bodied with a long, luxurious finish. My note: Phenomenal: pure essence of apple goodness and warm kitchen memories. Nice acidity, what’s not to love here?

Pomme De Glace Ice Cider food pairings: apple crumble and French vanilla ice cream.

Corinna Horton rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Picked a bottle up quite by accident with out noticing the word "ice" before "cider"; for a pleasant surprise. Sweeter than the ciders I'm used to, it has BIG apple flavor and undertones of honey. Paired with a duck confit, goat cheese salad with a mustard vinaigrette and that was --- kinda' great.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
