A slightly off-dry, tangy and acidic cider with funky aromas with hints of citrus and baked apple, with sturdy tannins to finish.
Location: East Branch Delaware River, NY
This cider is a beautiful amber color, is a touch off-dry with a sharp, tangy acidity, and is a bit more effervescent than some past releases. Classic woodsy, funky aromas mingle with hints of citrus, carrot, and baked apple and the palate is mineral and backed by sturdy tannins.
Fermented with wild yeasts, no bottle-conditioning or disgorging to allow the yeast, sediment and cider to coexist.
The apples for this bottling are sourced from the hills overlooking the East Branch of the Upper Delaware River. Like all of the apples for their Homestead Ciders they are foraged from wild, abandoned orchards that have not been treated with chemicals for years.
