Malus Domestica Elstar Apple tree

Hi there,

I bought this Malus Domestica Elstar Apple tree last summer. This is a tree that can grow in a big pot. When I bought , the tree didn't look very happy as it had very few leaves and was in a small pot. I put it in a big pot and watered it regularly until the start of last winter. Then the tree shed all the leaves and went dormant. In Feb/March this year it started to flower and I did a stupid mistake of watering it. Then we had this cold spell snowing in April and probably it went into a shock and so far it hasn't released a single leaf. I was busy with my personal problems and couldn't really take care of it. I see it's not dead yet as the stem hasn't dried. Was wondering is there anything I could do to resurrect it? Or do I have to wait till next Spring? Do you think it's already dead? Please find enclosed images of the tree
