There's breadth on the palate, giving way to ample stone-fruit flavors that are held in line against a backdrop of talc and lime. This is beautifully balanced, elegant and well integrated.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
