The 2022 Farmhouse Dry is a full-bodied, aromatic, slightly astringent cider that showcases a bittersharp & bittersweet heavy blend of apples.
Balanced acidity. Unfiltered. Medium acidity. Moderately sparkling in a bottle conditioned style for fine bubbles, this minimal intervention cider has very little sulfites added. Bottled December 2022.
A blend of the following English, French and American apples:
Golden Russet - 23%, Wickson - 3%, Harrison - 21%
Franklin - 19%, Porter’s Perfection - 8%
Dabinett, Binet Rouge, Kingston Black,
Yarlington Mill = 26%
Aroma: Orange peel, anise, fresh apricot.
Palate: Citrus (grapefruit and lemon), fruit forward, mouthwatering acidity that hits very quickly. Mid palate "crabby" tannins. Subtle, but lingering finish characterized by "softer", bittersweet tannins.
