Sundström Cider 2017 Cider/Cider

This cider is a blend of 75% Rhode Island Greening & 25% Northern Spy apples. It was fermented slowly over 6 weeks before aging in tank, on the gross lees, for over 5 months. The cider was racked for bottling with no fining or filtration. The final cider is refermented in the bottle, a la Traditional Method (without disgorgement), to produce a lightly sparkling cider that has bright fruit backed with mineral, dried meadow flowers and kaffir lime. It is incredibly refreshing and surprisingly long, with a delicate phenolic structure that keeps one salivating for more. Think non-pink rosé, a more refreshing prosecco, a truly dry wine made from apples that has real fruit acids and savory texture.
