Bright gold color. Aromas and flavors of marble, vanilla bean pod, chardonnay, pound cake with pineapple sauce, and ripe pear with a satiny, crisp, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity light body and an effortless, interesting, medium-long finish manifesting shades of sea salt, chalk, and underripe cherry finish. An understated, ethereal cider with great food affinity; a nice choice for pinot grigio drinkers.

Common Cider

Wine Glass Pokal Cider.jpg
Serve in a Pokal
Common ciders range in alcohol from 4-8% and typically feature dominant apple aromas and flavors. Most are not dry, but also not cloying, with a sweet, medium body and acidity. This style is what the majority of consumers associate with hard cider. The descriptor 'common' is in reference to the types of apples used to produce these ciders, rather than in reference to its quality of ready availability. Common ciders are produced from culinary table apples, typically including varietals such as Golden Delicious, Jonathan and Macintosh to name a few.
