Neige Premiere 2008 is a light orange with coppery reflections in colour. Blend of Fuji, Pouliot, Golden Russet, Cortland, McMillan, Honey Gold and other traditional apple varieties that do not fall from the trees during autumn. These were picked while the temperature was approximately -15°C, the fruits still hanging on trees were dehydrated by the sun and literally cooked by the cold and wind. Sugars were concentrated through natural cryextraction. Frozen apples were then pressed in order to extract the precious nectar. The extracted must was then placed in stainless steel tanks where it fermented for a for a period of approximately eight months, at low temperatures, before being bottled. More than 6 kilos of apples are used to produce
This is incredibly pure and has clean notes of ripe apples and cinnamon spices.
