Sundström Cider

Hudson Valley

Leif Sundström runs one of the country’s most forward-thinking cideries, focused on varietal typicity, terroir, promotion of improved variety selection in the orchard, progressive orchard practices, and minimalist cellar work. Working with sustainably grown, heirloom apple varieties from historical cider-producing regions around New York State, he makes small quantities of dry, vinous ciders. They are complex, textural, acid-driven, and meant to age and evolve in bottle. Leif’s work is animated by his search for “the impacts of terroir and agriculture on cider’s ultimate potential.”

Sundström Cider 2020 Liminal

Geneva Tremlett’s & Golden Russet co-macerated for ~36 hrs prior to a slow fermentation in stainless steel before racking to neutral 500 liter Hungarian oak barrels for 6 months. This year's blend of 50/50 Golden Russett/Geneva Tremlett's builds a cider that is boasting with aromatics and mineral depth, and also reveals a long life of further fruit and body development for some time to come.
Released without disgorgement - beware of sediment.
