Gold color. Attractive aromas of leather patina, warm earth, foraged mushrooms, lime spritzed jicama, and grilled corn with a round, crisp, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a complex, very long peach preserves, bruleed lemon, butter, and sesame candy finish. French cider lovers may fall in love with this balanced new world heritage cider with great balance, texture, and endless finish.

Heritage ciders are those made from heirloom and cider variety apples. These varieties are called sharps, sharp-sweets, bittersharps, and bittersweets. While these types of apples typically don't make for great snacking, their acidity and tannin content make for great cider. Heritage ciders can be both sweet or dry, and often have a wine-like flavor profile. Sugar and acid are often in harmonious balance, and there typically a slight astringency due to the tannic nature of the apples. Seek out these ciders and discover complex, traditional flavor profiles.
