High-tannin heirloom apples find balance with the fruitier varieties of Grimes Golden, Rhode Island Greening and Newtown Pippin in this dry, sparkling cider hailing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Estery aromas of apple, pineapple and orchard blossom carry to a medium-bodied, smooth palate that adds white currant, peach skin and green gooseberry to the mix. White-tea tannins round out the finish of this well-crafted cider.
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.
