Pale pink coral color. Fruity, earthy aromas and flavors of kiwi-strawberry custard tart, apple, and melon with a supple, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a sleek, stimulating, medium-length finish displaying impressions of apple-lemon sorbet finish. A tasty, mouthwatering rose cider that will appeal to cider, rose wine, and sparkling wine drinkers.

Rose ciders are blush colored ciders that achieve their color in a variety of ways, traditionally by using red fleshed apples. Inspired by the popularity of rose wine, rose ciders are light, fruity, and festive. Enjoy them on their own or with light summer fare.
