Made entirely from the Kingston Black apple, a traditional cider-making variety hailing from the UK, this cider speaks to the singularity of its composition. Pineapple rind aromas are focused on the nose, with savory and earthy elements of cheese rind, tilled earth and geranium hiding in the background. Weighty and round on the still palate, streamlined spiced apple and additional cheese rind notes meet mild tannins and acidity.
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.
