Tasting Notes

A vivid nose of wildflower honey and apple blossoms is supported by orange marmalade. Apple pie spice intermingles with classic cider flavors culminating in a opulent finish.

Winemaker Notes

985 gallons of blended juices were frozen for 10 days at 11F. After the initial thawing, the cube tanks were trucked back to Regional, re-frozen, and this cycle was repeated twice more. The overall yield from 2 months of thawing was 271 gallons of juice at 36 Brix. The juice was fermented over two weeks, and the fermentation was stopped by chilling at 19.5 Brix, 40 days after it began. The fermentation temperature was kept between 58F and 69F throughout. The wine was sterile filtered and bottled  on 8/18/16.

This wine is vegan friendly.

200 cases were produced.

Food Pairing

Surely a match made in heaven with an apple tarte, a sharp-cheddar and apple clafouti or even Mom’s best apple pie.
