NEIGE is the leading inspiration of La Face Cachée de la Pomme. Established in 1994, the cidery is the origin of the very first Apple Ice Wine (also known as Apple Ice Cider), to be developed and commercialised in Québec and throughout the World.

Located in the village of Hemmingford, in Québec, owner Francois Pouliot and Stéphanie Beaudoin exploit their 100 acres, on which several tens of thousands of apple trees are grown to allow the creation of their Apple Ice Wine, NEIGE.

Produced since 1994, NEIGE is made predominantly from MacIntosh apples, known for their sweet and acidic taste.

Vinification
Produced from rare varieties of apples that do not fall off the trees in autumn. They are handpicked in winter when temperatures fall as low as -15C. The fruits remaining on the trees are dehydrated by the sun and literally cooked by the cold and wind. The sugars are concentrated through natural cryoextraction and the frozen apples are then pressed to extract the precious nectar. The fresh pressed must is placed in stainless steel tanks where it ferments for approximately eight months, at low temperatures, before being bottled.

Tasting Notes
Light orange with coppery reflections in colour. Aromas of ripe apple blending together with tobacco, spices, caramel and fruit. It tastes bright and fresh with lingering notes of butterscotch.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
