Description

STYLE: Bittersharp apple cider

AROMA & FLAVOR: Aromas of pears and white wine, a bit of cucumber and grapefruit rind. This cider hits the pallet with flowing acidity around the mouth with a background of earthy bitters to hold the acidity in check, clean and crisp with a lingering pithy finish.

APPLE VARIETIES: Finnriver grown, organic Golden Russet, Ashmeads Kernel, Karmijn de Sonnaville, Belle de Boskoop, Claygate Pearmain, plus some organic Golden Russet apples from Ashland, Oregon.

CIDERMAKER NOTES: Made strong and intentional efforts to mature this cider as one would a high acid table wine. The cider is estery- meaning the acid notes are melded into alcohol to develop a smooth body with difficult to name aromatics. Three different yeasts, fermented separately, aged as one for 8 months. The combination of the Oregon apples is new this year and brought a full presence of the “champagne apple” Golden Russet. Balancing that lovely acidity with the aromatics of the Finnriver antique fruit has culminated into a cider of we are proud of.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Pour into a flute for fun and a bit more to chew on than champagne, bring to a fall picnic and pair with cured sausages, smoked cheeses, dried apricots and a kiss from your sweetheart.
