Menach, Hi.....

Wines these are not, but made from apples, fruit wines they are. And definitely not to be compared to Calvados because these are made as wines unlike Calvados which is a distilled apple brandy.

At any rate, I first tasted the Pinnacle fruit wines when visiting Vinoble in Jerez de Fronteira several months ago. I was quite favorably impressed. My tasting notes follow.

Domaine Pinnacle, Ice Cider, Quebec, 2005: Absolutely delicious, calling to mind ice-cold apple juice with a decided alcoholic kick (12%), a dessert-style qua ice-style fruit wine shows generous apple and apricot fruits, those backed up by notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, all on a vibrant background Lingers comfortably and remarkably clean on the palate. Drink now. Score 88. K

Domaine Pinnacle, Sparkling Ice Cider, Quebec, 2006: With generous fine bubbles, a sparkling ice cider showing green and red apple notes along with (surprisingly enough) hints of grapes, spices and lanolin. Light, with moderate sweetness well balanced by natural acidity and a well balanced, lightly honeyed note on the finish. Drink now-2009. Score 88. K
