Cold Hand Malus X – Feminam
From the producer –
“Feminam is a dessert wine that combines the most extreme flavours of the humble apple, heat from the roasted Eau de Vie and sweetness from the frozen apple pulp.
Aroma and Elstar apples are pressed when at the peak of ripeness.
The freshly-pressed pulp is then deep-frozen in a freezer room.
When thawed, the thick, syrupy juice contains three times as much sugar, acid and aroma as before it was frozen.
The syrup is then blended with Eau de Vie.
Feminam has an alcohol content of 19% and is matured for 8 months in used 220 litre white wine barrels.
The alcohol content balances perfectly with the fresh acid and plentiful sweetness from the apples.
It has a deep, intense aroma and lots of apple/honey/caramel flavours.
Enjoy as an aperitif, with a cup of coffee or with a dessert. Serve at approx. 10 – 14 C.”
