A single varietal Golden Russet cider, from 2020.
Russeting is a genetic characteristic of this varietal: a tendency of the skins to become tougher, thicker and darker. The cider itself is easy and recognizable for those that enjoy classic French or English ciders. It's simplicity is a refreshing diversion from some of our funkier offerings.
What's it like? This vintage has that distinct russet apple aroma and is quite dry. Brace yourself for electric acidity, soft salinity and big, fresh apple aromas intermingled with subtle wildflowers. The natural russeting process adds body and a touch of nuttiness.
