Brilliant light gold color. Aromas and flavors of creme fraiche, baked peach and apple, apple pop tart, and white wine in a leather sack with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and a silky, refreshing, breezy finish conveying notes of melon rind and nectarine pit, nougat, wet stone, and apple bobbing mineral water finish. A very light and delicate cider to whet the palate.

English Cider

English-style ciders range in alcohol from 5-10% and feature austere and muted apple aromas and flavors. These ciders can be produced anywhere in the world, as long as English-origin apple varieties are used. English-style ciders are typically full-bodied and dry, and may also feature a slight “barnyard nose.”
