Van Nahmen Schone van Boskoop Appelsap
The family business Privatkelterei Van Nahmen has its origins in 1917, when great-grandfather Wilhelm van Nahmen started the company with the production of apple syrup. Since the 1930s, people have specialized in fruit juices and we also carry an extensive range of gastronomically high-quality alcohol-free fruit juices, Frucht-Secco's and Sparkling Juicy Tea from the Chateau Petrus under the Fruit juices.
We are not talking here just about fruit juices, but about the Grandcru among the fruit juices. Not surprising that you can also find these products in the high end Horeca and even in 2 and 3 * restaurants such as the Librije.
The hand-picked fruit comes straight from the orchards and is pressed and processed by Van Nahmen himself, without additional additives. Only the coolest fruit is eligible. The farmers are expected to leave the fruit on the tree for as long as possible. According to owner Peter Van Nahmen, this slow food idea contributes to the quality of the juice. Let the tree break when the fruit is the ripest. Only when the tree is almost releasing and dropping the fruit is it time to harvest. At that time, the fruit is full of flavor and aroma. And you can taste that in the juice.
For his juices, Peter uses one variety as much as possible for each type of fruit. Indeed, just like the monocépage wines made from one grape variety. Van Nahmen likes to experiment with traditional fruit varieties. The juice manufacturer also encourages farmers to grow fruit varieties that are less popular with large supermarkets. The age-old apple variety Sternrenette (known to us as the star apple, the classic Christmas apple), for example, only grows in a few orchards. The taste of this juice is stronger and fresher than the taste of 'regular' apple juice, which is made from a mix of apple varieties. Nowadays Van Nahmen now offers a range of almost thirty different juices, often from singe varietal, sometimes a blend. And very special, also from famous wine grapes such as Dornfelder and Riesling. Serving tip? Pour into a beautiful wine glass, possibly with sparkling spring water or sparkling wines such as Champagne, Cava or Prosecco (ratio 1: 1).
The Schone van Boskoop, also known simply as Boskoop, is an old apple variety. He was accidentally discovered in the Dutch Boskoop by mr. Ottolander, like the shoot of a wild tree. It is an excellent apple for lovers of slightly more acidic apples. In order to support the preservation of this apple variety, the owners of the fruit orchards receive a fair price for their fruit as part of Van Namen's surcharge project. The apple is gently pressed into 100% pure juice.
The apple juice in the glass is cloudy due to the absence of fine filtering. In the nose, the juice has a deliciously rins and fresh bouquet, with aromas of late harvested apples with a thick skin, with a hint of apple leaf, aniseed and lemon peel. Lively flavors on the palate thanks to the clear and fresh acids, a modest sweetness with notes of autumn fruit and fruit inlaid in rum. Full-bodied tannins in the final give a bite and a nicely textured, almost grainy finish.
Do not drink this exclusive gourmet apple juice too cold because that is a waste of the beautiful flavors. Around 14-16 degrees is excellent. This Van Nahmen Schöner von Boskoop is a beautiful accompaniment of gravlax with apple horseradish and potato rösti, tarte flambée with bacon and onion, rye bread with Schwarzwalder schinken, savory stews with beans, potato and bacon.
To make this fruit juice follow the highest quality standards, everything starts with the selection in the vineyard and the determination of the optimal harvest time for the grape-friendly harvest. During the maturing process on the bottle, the juice releases excess acid in the form of so-called "tartar". First, very fine, snowflake-like, clear miniature crystals grow together like vine leaves. Later, these many small crystals become larger, sometimes even amber, to form large crystals. The color can vary greatly depending on what other minerals are included in the tartar formation. It is a natural process that indicates the maturity of the bottle and especially confirms the naturalness. The crystals do not come from the bottom of the bottle when you pour gently
