Sundström Cider 2018 Liminal

This year’s edition of Liminal is one that was allowed significantly more time than years before, released after 12 months of elevage and another 9 in the bottle. Geneva Tremlett’s & Golden Russet co-macerated for ~24 hrs prior to a 36-day fermentation and spontaneous ML conversion in stainless steel before racking to neutral 500 liter Hungarian oak barrels. Battonage practices were minimized and elevage extended for this vintage, to better stabilize and naturally fine the cider. After 6 months in barrel, the cider rested another 6 months in stainless before bottling. The results are as harmonious as a cider can get, with aroma is at once fruity, floral and feral; while the flavors become savory and full of dark mineral that grow with ripe fruit on the finish. Bottled in December 2019, released without disgorgement - beware of sediment.
