3 bottles of Blenheim Ice Cider 2019
3 bottles of The Wonder Pear Dessert Wine 2016
The Wonder Pear Ice Wine
Having great success with Blenheim Superb, we were keen to try the same principles to dessert pears – the first to do this in the world! Fully ripe Conference and Comice pears are pressed and the juice frozen to obtain a sweet concentrated juice through “cryoconcentration”. This juice is fermented slowly to achieve an ice pear wine with high residual sugar levels, yet a balancing acidity.
A big powerful palate with intense flavours of apricot, quince, and a hint of soft caramel. Pairs well with chocolate-based desserts and strong ewes or goats milk cheeses.
Blenheim Ice Wine
We were the first UK producer of this Great British alternative to pudding wine!
The juice of Blenheim Orange and Laxton Superb apples is frozen and slowly thawed yielding a sweet concentrated juice. This is fermented slowly to achieve a cider with high residual sugar levels, yet a balancing acidity. A perfect aperitif, or as an accompaniment for fruity desserts such as a tarte tatin or excellent with strong cheese such as Stilton.
