Bright, shiny pink with a purple hue. The aroma is lush and fruit driven with fine apple aromas and elegant yeast notes. It is beautifully pure and clean. The mouth-feel is amazing filled with ripe fruit and refreshing fine CO2 mousse. There is great structure and complexity and the fruit is seamless from the start to the long lingering finish. The best is the overall balance and playfulness between the tannins, the vibrant acidity and the sweet fruitiness.
Food Pairing Notes
Best served chilled, this slightly effervescent cider makes an able companion to a wide variety of party and picnic foods—hors d’oeuvres, salads and cheeses—as well as fruit pies and tarts. Pair it with grilled meat (especially pork), seafood or vegetables, too. Or just enjoy it on its own!
