We’ve tasted this
Another step in Riestra’s century old history was to make this succulent ice cider by freezing the juice of carefully selected Asturian apples using cryo-concentration. Riestra start with apple varieties which combine the right balance of tartness, bitterness and sweetness with the resulting must frozen and defrosted to concentrate the juice and all its flavour, then it’s fermented for 9 months in oak barrels.
Powerful acidity and sweetness in perfect balance. Strongly copper coloured, intensely fruity and aromatic, with notes of roasted apple and yeasty apple compote, the sweet entry on the palate gives way to pleasant acidity.
Blue cheese, nuts, dried fruit, pâtés such as foie gras, or creamy or cake desserts – crème brûlée, cheese cake, bread pudding, almond cake, fruit and nut tarts – tarte tatin, pear tart, walnut torte, or anything with salted caramel sauce.
