ENGLISH STYLE CIDER | 03.20
This classic "sharp" UK apple seems to love the Palouse region, bearing profusely and yielding an unusually balanced profile. Noticeably pink from the apple's flesh, this cider's pleasant bittersweet nose leads strong baked apple, stone fruit, strawberry and burnt sugar flavors. Superb!
Enjoy as a sipper, or pair with sharp Cheddar and Stilton cheese, roast duck, pork or rich casseroles.
Finished Gravity = 1.010 (Off-dry)
This UK varietal is often classified as a “sharp” apple best suited for blending, but grown at our partner Bishops’ Orchard in Garfield, WA, they express remarkable balance and flavor, and (we think) make for an outstanding single-varietal cider. Wild-yeast fermented (as always) and aged three months in American oak barrels.
