Domaine Pinnacle introduced what is believed to be the world's first sparking ice apple wine at the TFWA Asia Pacific show in Singapore last month .

Made from a blend of six types of apple picked after the first frost, approximately 80 apples are used to produce each 37.5cl bottle. Production is just 30,000 cases.

Available in travel retail, exclusively through Camus, it is described as having a complex, intense, sweet apple flavour with balancing acidity.

The existing Summit Selection range is already widely available in travel retail markets.
